This is two posts in a day, but this is important.

Today is Halloween. The past ten years or so has seen a decline in traditional trick or treating (door to door). It's being replaced by trunk or treat or even office trick or treat, where kids go to offices and stores for candy. This is wrong! Trick or treating teaches kids the value of work. They learn the more doors they knock on, the more candy they get. They are taught a good work ethic. Trunk or treat or office trick or treating teaches them that all they have to do is walk around with their hands out. It perpetuates a welfare-state mentality. We need to take back traditional trick or treating. The future of our youth and our nation depends on it. Who will stand for trick or treating as it has been traditionally done? If not us, who? If not now, when?
