Family Value Have the morals we once cherished, been tarnished In the new day of our technologically advanced age, are we letting our moral obligations down. Are the standards of society plunging into an abyss. I for one am shocked at how deteriorated our morals have become. Walking around Sandton City, I see fourteen year old daughters in tight short mini-dresses, smoking cigarettes trying to impress their black lipsticked friends. They wear black leather boots that come to knee height and boost their sliver studded faces an extra four centimeters. As they look into mirrors, they see what was the face of an innocence.
They look in their blue eyes surrounded by black eye liner and would laugh at this sight, but rather suppress the out burst of youth and innocence by lighting up another death stick. They try to convince themselves that the world is really is against them. Were has the destruction of youth come from I listen to the radio and they are playing a world wide hit of a woman coughing up the words I hate you and another lyric sung by Puff Daddy about how he smoked some nigger who entered his turf. This is just music, it can not affect our society.
Suddenly the uncontrollable wheezing stops been blurted out of the radio and they start to announce the news. A voice rings out of the radio saying GIGGLING SCHOOL BOYS KILL TWENTY THREE IN SCHOOL SHOOTING I listen briefly as the speaker tells of a group of boys called the Trench Coat Mafia senselessly gunned down there school pupils in an American school. Parents all over the world think to themselves of what kind of drugged out psychopaths these boys must have been. Then there swear a prayer thanking god that there are no drugs in there top class suburban schools, But just as wishful thinking sets in the radio Blurts out 16 year old Green side high boy end his life after owing money to drug lords. This statement is follow by a Gauloises blondes smoking ad. We live in a world of free thinking zombies ruled by world trends and the media.
Are We Free Yet? By Channel Hallowell .".. The Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and by the chains of discrimination." Unfortunately, forty years from Martin Luther King's I Have A Dream speech this statement he made, still holds truth. One hundred and forty years from the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, we must face that Blacks are still not free. Blacks are ...
Our morals have long been washed away in to the sea with our past. What happen to the days when love was a feeling not a verb. The days when mothers knew exactly were the children were. When families went out on weekends to clean parks for picnics to eat sandwiches, swim and play games on the green lush grass till the children were so tied that they fell asleep on the ride home. Family time used to be a joy not a burden. Today one out of ever three marriages will end up in divorce.
Juvenile crime has increased by thirty percent since 1980 in America alone. The strong Moral mountains that were set by our forefathers are becoming more and mare eroded by us. Our lives are like R rated movies, surrounded by sex, strong language, nudity and violence. Done by Jays an Singh.
