GINNY'S SOAPBOX TIME"




When I listened to this Video this morning ..it took me back to my childhood  (of many years ago)
And I thought to myself ...my goodness! How things have changed...In my day we started every thing with a prayer to God so that whatever!  Would be successful...Now there are conflicts as to where we want to mention God in our prayers ..Either  in school,or meetings, on the Mighty Dollar, and probably more than I can think of alone.
What happened to us? Or should I say What happened to me! I think the stress of life takes it toll on all of us..Some of us can't trust  a "handshake" anymore to seal a deal..We need lawyers with extensive learning to unwind the meaning of words ..To seal the Deal in the end...is what it's supposed to be.
The Bank! used to be an honest place to deposit a dime...You were encouraged to be thrifty..If you took out a loan ..you were given time to pay it..I can remember having a little book with slots where you would put in a dime each week (if you had it) and at the month you would add it to your Christmas account! which you would receive back in time to buy gifts for your loved ones at Christmas time...
I remember also when the milkman delivered Fresh milk in Bottles! Now its paper with wax. I know the .trees are so sick of us with are sorry ways we call progress..

I enjoyed hearing that verse of "The Star Spangled Banner" - I'm with you, Ginny, God comes first.

Things have changed a lot, that's for sure, Ginny. The crowd there seemed to really enjoy the verse he sang. That was neat to hear.

I don't know anything about the Tea Party or what it is representing...I ran across the song and it held meaning for me...Ginny
