Whatever happened to honesty and integrity? When growing up, nobody locked their doors. We all worked hard and honored each other. Every job we did, we tried to do our very best. Life was simple but good. We never dreamed some people would have it so hard as they do now. No one lived off welfare. We helped each other as best we could. No one shot and killed the police, school children or other people. There were a few outlaws from time to time, but they didn't last long.

As adults, citizens and noncitizens, we have to support our government and the police who are a great part of it. We cannot allow lawlessness to take over our country. We have to teach our children and grandchildren to live with honesty and integrity or we will all be destroyed by foolish, dishonest and selfish individuals with no morals or integrity. The old saying, "freedom isn't free," sure rings true today. We all have to work together and support each other, our government and our police to keep our country free from those evil and lawless individuals. We can do it, and we must do it.
