Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

As we have witnessed the happenings in our nation over the past few decades and especially last year with the virus and political animosity, is the ultimate reason for such harshness and hatred found in this quote by the late Army General Douglas MacArthur (1880-1964)? He said, “History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.”
