I was taught to say in my childhood days,
God Bless You when you sneeze
And when I speak to others
Use Thank You and Please.
I was taught the pledge of Allegiance
And to say"one nation under God"
Taught of the Bible and that the Holy Land
Was where the feet of Jesus trod.
I was taught that patriotism was good
That it was right to show our pride
That the USA was loved every day
By the ones that would in her abide.
I was taught to respect others
Whether they were like me or not
And to be kind to others
I never ever forgot.
So now I'm rather befuddled
When I look around me at the world
And wonder what I would have thought
As that skinny freckled country girl
If I had faced the things kids face
As they grow up in this world today-
And I ask God to forgive us all
For letting it get this way!
Thena Smith
