    What is your opinion of your generation? Younger? Older?
    There are many good, hardworking and moral people in my generation, but there were also those who opened the way for liberalism that has resulted in too much permissiveness in our society today.
    The younger generation is reaping the negative effects of this permissiveness and taking it to a greater degree because the moral compass they have been given is flawed. However it must be said that, like my generation, there are many good, hardworking and moral members of the younger generation in whom
  • What are your thoughts on the American education system?

    What are your thoughts on the American education system?
    If it wasn't broken, then don't fix it. We made it to the moon without the aid of modern computers. We used brains, slide rules, ingenuity and hardwork. I don't see this emphasized in education today.

  • What is your view on dating and marriage?

    Dating is a natural way for boys and girls to get to know and respect each other. I believe premarital sex and living together before marriage is wrong.

  • What are your thoughts on the American education systems and the system of higher learning?

    There is promise for our education systems, but I feel they are going through a bad time. I feel there are cycles and right know, those in charge are not the wisest. Also, standardized tests are focused on far too much. We should teach to instill knowledge, not teach to pass a test.

    People marry too quickly today and for the wrong reasons. It is becasue of this that marriages do not even last long. People don't respect marriage enough to work at it and give up too easily. Goes back to a generational culture of bad work ethics. Marriage is sacred union under God, it is becoming less valued/respected.
