Aunt Norie’s Sewing Room
I’ve been asked to repeat this little jewel and I think it’s a good one to repeat. In fact, I think a condensed version of it up on billboards would be fitting in today’s world.
A very proud grandpa and champion of children asked me to step out of the sewing room again to give you this. Its author is unknown. It’s just titled “And we said ‘OK.’”
I think it started when Madalyn O'Hare complained; she didn’t want prayer in schools. And we said ‘OK.’
Then, someone said you can’t read the Bible in school. The Bible says you shouldn’t kill, you shouldn’t steal and you should love your neighbor as yourself. And we said ‘OK.’
Then, Dr. Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children. Their personalities or their self esteem might be warped and damaged. And we said ‘OK.’
Then, someone said teachers and principles had better not discipline our children because we don’t want bad publicity and we surely don’t want to be sued. And we said ‘OK.’
Then, someone said to let our daughters have abortions if they want, and we won’t even tell their parents. And we said ‘OK.’
Then, someone else said let’s give our sons and daughters all the condoms they want so they can have all the fun they desire, and we won’t have to tell their parents. And we said ‘OK.’
Then, some of our top officials said it doesn’t matter what we do in private as long as we do our jobs. And we said ‘OK.’
Now, we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don’t know right from wrong and why it doesn’t bother them to kill someone.
If we think long and hard enough, we can probably figure it out. Could it have something to do with “reaping what we have sown?”
God bless our nation, our families and our world.
