Ok, my first blog.
I have a grown daughter who is 26, married and made me a grandpa. I have an 18 year old daughter who I just left at college a couple weeks ago. And I have a son who is 15, who at this precarious age is finding out about himself. Three kids who are each unique, and different, and all whom I love more than life itself. I am watching and listening to the convention on TV, and I have to wonder just what this country is coming to for my kids. There are idiots who in the name of "protest" are breaking windows, throwing human waste, and attacking cops and people. Do they honestly think these activities change things for the better?
I am far from a perfect parent. But I never ever raised my kids to disrespect authority. This is the greatest country in the world. We have freedoms others can only dream of. Freedom is not destroying property in protest. Freedom is better than that. I work with a 30 something guy who keeps telling me that this country is no good and he just has to find a way to get out. The next time he tells me that, my response will be that I will donate the money to buy him a one way ticket to anywhere in the world. And that I'm not kidding, and he is welcome to never come back.
