A Poem

* Once Upon A Time... *

Once upon a time,
To be pregnant out of wedlock was to be a disgrace.

Once upon a time,
Couples got married to bring forth children.

Once upon a time,
Children were thought of as blessings and gifts from God.

Once upon a time,
“Spare the rod, spoil the child” was taken seriously.

Once upon a time,
Parents knew better than the child.

Once upon a time,
People worked on their land instead of their computer.

Once upon a time,
Religion wasn’t forbidden in school.

Once upon a time,
Seniors were respected for the very fact that they were old.

Once upon a time,
Your elders’ advice was valued.

Once upon a time,
To be gay was to be happy.

Once upon a time,
The majority of the US was not liberal.

Once upon a time,
Modesty was the fashion.

Once upon a time,
The US was close to God.

-Yours truly
Please tell me what you think and if you have any suggestions. Thanks!

That's so beautiful Vicki!! It's so sad, and so true. Especially the part about older people, they have so much to give us, but we don't bother to ask for it, or even bother with them. :( May God bless them!!

I have to agree with both Yaviel and Remmirath that it is true.
