I believe that we need to start with the parents (See: “Soul-Searching Time,” Mon., April 14).

They must start taking responsibility for their own actions. We need to let them discipline their children at an early age in whatever way necessary without interference from the politically correct.

Our country started falling apart went they did away with the military draft. This is where young men from all walks of life learn right and wrong, honor, obedience and respect for human life.

In my day if you had a disagreement with someone you challenged them to a fist fight, not with guns or knives.

Maybe if we would all slow down and get a hold of our lives we would have time for our children.

Start with the very young and work our way out all this mess.

— William Hodges, Fort Worth
