Teach us to type again

My long-deceased mother taught me to type using the following words:“now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country.”  Apparently this phrase of words contains many of the letters in our alphabet.  Vonnie learned to type during WWII, and that was a time when most of the people in the country were focused first on doing what was right for the country.  Men were openly fighting and dying for their country.  Women, or others at home or not in battle, sacrificed at home to help those in battle.  Young girls at that time were learning to type, with a focus on the country first.

I recently came upon the following Hierarchy of Loyalties that members of the military are sworn to uphold.  Notice that the Constitution comes first and the Self last!

Please teach us to type again.  Teach us to focus again first on what is best for the country!
