I say it with profound sorrow but the truth is that this simply isn't the country we grew up in. That is not to say there are no longer any patriots among us, there are, obviously. But love of country seems to have gone out of fashion. The evidence goes far beyond the way some people treat our flag; it's how they sing the nationl anthem, as though it had been written by and for some rock group, and how we deal with murdering terrorists, as though they were entitled to the protections of our constitution. Can this be turned around? Can we be again what we were? I don't know. I hope so.
