We receive many letters and e-mails from our readers. This one is representative of what is happening all over our country and country's around the world. Isn't it time we hold our leadership accountable? This letter came from a small town in the Northwest, but it could have been written about towns all over the US.
We do love it here. But Utopia has been shattered! Everyone in our subdivision was shattered. Some jerk-faced teens trying to play the Bloods and the Crips, painted our fences with graffiti. Joe, his neighbor, our next door neighbor - by one fence slat - our fences ajoin. Everyone got out and erased the stuff, but it left us all in a state of - gawd, it is happening here!!. And there has been two asaults on the Greenbelt.
Our beautiful lives have been crushed. The gangs are growing. Our once quiet street now has speeding crappy cars and trucks - so you know stuff is going on around here - fewer places are owned and crummy people moving into the cheap rentals.
I read recently, the drug cartels are the largest and most powerful mafia. They are infiltrating the small suburbs, getting a foothold and spreading the drugs in small towns across America.. Is there any way on earth to curtail this criminality??
Mexico has let it grow to such a great business that it is out of control. The murders are daily - thousands so. far this year. Will there be any stopping the killing in our country or Mexico or the world??? I still want to move to Mercury or some little planet that knows nothing about the horrors of drugs, money and greed.
Don't you wish we could all go back to the 50's - 60's when all we knew about the word 'drugs' is a word that was connected with bands in Hollywood? At least, that is what I remember about the word in high school.
Our biggest 'crime' was drinking a beer on a school sanctioned Beach Party'. I remember, I drank a Country Club Malt Liquor. OOOhhhh! Did't tell my mother! I wish we could go back to those innocent days. What did we do to deserve this happening to our llives, to out country????????
The evil of money, greed, power will be the death of the rest of us who just want a peaceful life.......................Boy.
