I believe this country has come a long way from where it used to be. We have achieved so much in the past five decades, but I think there needs to be a lot more change for us to truly be on the right path. Some of it may be painful and some of it may not, but we definitely need change, and not the hollow promises of change that Barack Obama gave to the nation. I will point out some key points in my vision of where we can be in the future and we CAN get there with the proper changes. These changes will have to cover many different areas, including thought process, one parent households (or dead-beat parents), proper education of our young people, proper raising of our young people, including manners and respect for themselves, as well as respect for others, and many other areas.
