The Foundation of National Morality

The Foundation of National Morality

A quote, taken from  Founders Quote Daily  and sent to me by my best and life-long submarine buddy, Howard Hawkins.

“The foundation of national morality must be laid in private families. … How is it possible that Children can have any just Sense of the sacred Obligations of Morality or Religion if, from their earliest Infancy, they learn their Mothers live in habitual Infidelity to their fathers, and their fathers in as constant Infidelity to their Mothers?” –John Adams, Diary, 1778
