Most American parents watching their children participate in sports have more on their minds than just how many kills or foul shots their child will pile up. Sarah Palin is no different. The former Alaska governor admits in a recent Facebook post that when she's taking in youth athletics, her thoughts often turn very serious. Understandable. Our precious children have an uncertain path ahead of them.
Parents must heed Palin's challenge to talk to their kids about this piece or risk leaving behind a nightmare society straight out of an Orwell book. Those who want to "fundamentally change America" already have us heading in that direction.
So, the next time your son or daughter has a game, be sure to cheer them on and show support for their efforts on the court. But also be committed to discussing real issues with them once the final whistle blows. Their future and the future of our country depends on it.
