What Happened To Respect?
Whether it’s happening in the Far East too I don’t know, but the fabric of society is clearly breaking down in the West.
Kids sit on buses while old people are left standing, and the kids don’t even look the other way, pretending that they haven’t noticed.
Young children now answer their parents back, teens swear at their parents and kids eat like animals.
And many times husbands and wives no longer respect each other.
We now have homosexuals and lesbians parading in scanty outfits and rejoicing in the streets of New York which now wants to allow gay marriages.
We maybe just need to recall the book, "Lord of the flies" to understand how easily people can revert to barbarity.
* Lord of the Flies is a novel by Nobel Prize-winning author William Golding.
It is about group of British schoolboys stuck on a deserted island who try to govern themselves, with disastrous results.
Its stances on the already controversial subjects of human nature and individual welfare versus the common good earned it position 68 on the American Library Association’s list of the 100 most frequently challenged books of 1990–1999.
In 2005, the novel was chosen by Time magazine as one of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to 2005 and was awarded a place on both lists of Modern Library 100 Best Novels, reaching #41 on the editor’s list, and #25 on the reader’s list.

Did we lose our way?
