This is a comment on a letter from Elliott Deutsch of Bel Air regarding the recent murders of city teens ("No secret why murders are taking place," April 22). I completely agree with his comments about the loss of core values and other key factors.
I think our country reached its high point during and immediately after World War II. Then our decline began and continues today. Our country could be great again if only we had leaders that had the courage to restore our old core values, but it seems such leaders are nowhere to be found.
