Now is the time to serve our country

It’s been said that the year 1955 was America’s peak of security, prosperity, and respectability. I tend to agree so while we fulfill our obligations to help President Trump restore these lost blessings, we should “soak” our minds in the music and culture of 1955. I was alive then and I can testify that life in America was a lot better then.

There are many things I am not permitted to reveal (yet) but a discerning mind can gain insights by listening to the music, looking through old magazines, and reading newspapers from that era. Go slowly and understand the differences. See how, for instance, men treated women with respect because they were respectable. Even strangers normally helped protect women and children.

The way back to the great nation we had before is plainly marked. The problem is that our enemies have altered and moved the sign posts.

A lot of brave men died for America while the women and children back home grieved. Now it’s time to serve our country.

-- Chuck Aherns, Philipsburg
