What Ever Happened?

What ever happened to children playing in the front yard and front doors that could be unlocked?

What ever happened to deals made on a handshake and your word was your bond?

What ever happened to being a gentleman who opened doors and stood when a lady entered the room?

What ever happened to politicians who cared more about their country than they did for their own pocket book?

What ever happened to our justice system that believed it was better to set one hundred guilty free than to imprison one innocent man?

What ever happened to the family where a home cooked meal wasn’t vacuum packed and sealed for freshness?

What ever happened to rooting for the good guy and underdog and belief that honor and integrity weren’t for saps?

What ever happened to memories and keepsakes or does everything have its price on the auction block?

What ever happened to accepting responsibility for your actions regardless of the consequences?

What ever happened to “Honor, love and cherish till death do us part?”

What ever happened to us?
