Why Has Our Country Changed?
Some wonder why our country is like it is today. It’s obvious to those that have seen the changes. Here’s what I have seen.
History indicates some things seemed like a good idea until they weren’t. For instance, in the 1950s smoking was cool, cheap, fashionable, and socially acceptable. Everybody was doing it. Ashtrays were everywhere including doctor’s waiting rooms until smoking was linked to lung cancer. My father-in-law was smoking a cigarette as he explained something will kill him. Lung cancer did.
