When, where and why did we lose respect of people in authority, including police, teachers, ministers? In my youth if there was a problem at school then there was a greater problem at home. Authority seemed to mean something in those days. Does this line of authority exist any more or could this be the reason we have 18,000 children in foster care. Where are the parents of today? Is this lack of respect the fruits of the sixties, ACLU, or some other entity ? Please, some one enlighten me as to why one person can take the lives of others and run away and hide?
