Our Endangered Values: America's Moral Crisis

by Jimmy Carter

We trust in ourselves and others

Americans have lost their moral compass
and we are facing a national crisis of faith
in our nation as we embark on a National
Service Requirement for our youth.

If Americans need to require our children
to volunteer service to our nation, perhaps
the goals and objectives of our nation are
wrong. For if the cause is just and right we
need only ask and volunteers will come to
do whatever they can do.

We Americans of conscience can only ask
you to do right. Our youth of conscience must
ask you to do right. We realize that we are
asking you to do the hardest work of your life
now by asking you to do right.

We expect that you too will say NO to a National
Service Requirement for our youth.

We Americans of conscience, in an effort to do
right for our children, look forward to you joining us.
