centers, and group therapy.
Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and
We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to
stand up and take responsibility for our actions.
Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was a
We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent.
Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins.
