I want to share something that’s disturbing and shows the poor way many children are brought up now a days. The lack of respect from the younger generation in America is sickening. From posting memes poking fun at planes hitting the Twin Towers, to calling the United States a bunch of hypocrites because we bombed Hiroshima & Nagasaki in Japan during World War II, our youth has never before been so uneducated and ignorant.
As a child, I can remember even 50 years after Pearl Harbor, no one in my generation making jokes about that tragic day. Yet, only a little over a decade, teenagers think it’s funny to poke fun at 9/11 for what? So they can get the attention they so desperately need?
What’s even worse is that these children try to spread how horrible we were by dropping the A bomb. They say this without doing any research whatsoever on why we would. I highly doubt many people have heard about the Nanking Massacre that took place late 1937-1938 in China at the hands of the Japanese. More people were killed (tortured and raped) in a six week span by the Japanese military, than casualties from both atomic bombs combined. These same people also haven’t taught themselves about the Battle of Okinawa, or how fiercely the Japanese fought and mobilized civilians against US forces.
This type of ignorance and lack of respect for history, is what can destroy our country. If we don’t educate our children, who will?
