still occasionally haunts The disaster drill staged near a local high school recently brought it to mind and it wont go It was about 9 as I when the phone rang those many years My a Methodist answered the I paid little attention to the con but when it was my father came to me and told me that a a class was The friends name was Because he and his family were members of my fathers my father would immediately go to their He asked me if I wanted to go and I In that era and in that small Texas every boys dream was to own a Cushman a kind of a cross between a motorcycle and a my had been one of those few fortunate enough to realize that Id begged for but riding his was as close as Id come to owning one of my In I know even had they wanted me to have my family could not have afforded to buy

pro tecting individual liberty than he was with protecting stability or social The Declaration of Independence and the Bill of clearly reflect Lockes doctrine of lim ited Now the great debate between Rousseau and Locke has come full circle and our coun try is faced with this one great question Is the government going to take away our individual freedom Many people are choosing thinking that the
