Family disgusted by NFL show

Watching MTV’s entertainment show on NFL, my husband and I were disgusted to watch this show, thinking that so many young people are seeing this thinking this is OK; especially since many parents have not instilled basic moral values in their children.

This is added fuel for the Islamic people to hate us Americans even more. Because they are afraid that their children growing up here in America will think this is the correct way to behave, since their adored TV stars are demonstrating it to them. TV actors have a responsibility towards their young and impressionable viewers in what kind of “brain food” they are serving to them. Many kids watch too much TV and parents are often not enough supervising them.

I am a German-American woman and was so proud when I became an American citizen and made sure to instill in my American-born daughter good values and pride in her German-American upbringing.

Now I can end saying: “God Bless America” – but I think it is more appropriate to pray “God Save America.”

Thank you for printing my letter and allowing me to express my beliefs.
