The Kids Aren’t Alright

While perusing the new summer fare that is being offered up in the name of entertainment, I was prompted to reflect on just one word: morals. Where have they gone? I seem to recall growing up in the 1950s with a solid sense of right from wrong. Oh sure, there were others who weren’t totally in step with my Catholic school values but nonetheless, we all had some sort of standards that we lived by.
I now observe the obvious void of decency in the ever influential media. Flashbacks to days when family television culminated in a life lesson to embrace, most certainly has gone by the wayside. To glorify nudity and pervasive language in today’s society is considered the “norm,” culture and refinement, a quality of the past. It is difficult not be offended and assaulted while four letter words are being bellowed from ones den.
I don’t want to “get with the times” if that means compromising my values and throwing my solid upbringing to the curb.
