Restore U.S. values I

The United States has come to a crossroad that requires choices to be made if it is to survive. The choices are to be made in areas that shape our values.
Those values must be anchored to a set of standards that are unchangeable. Morality must trump change. Any tool that might help shape our destiny by improving relationships needs to be embraced by each of us, and it needs to be endorsed by our government.
The Ten Commandments monument at the junior high school is such a tool and an example of what I'm trying to convey here. With such turmoil in our society, it is criminal for our courts to rule in any way but in favor of keeping morally uplifting signs and monuments in public view.
When our country is teetering on the brink of moral bankruptcy, then for the sake of all it seems appropriate for ruling in favor of morality. Even if that ruling isn't deemed to be fair by some. Life isn't always fair.
I implore all who see our country deteriorating for lack of morality to please speak up and take some action while there is time.
There is nothing moral about religion. True morality comes when we respect each other for who they are and realize that the United States is a melting pot of diverse views.
