The Lifestyle Chronicles - Learning To Serve Others

Representative Charles Rangel's call to reinstitute the draft has stirred some strong emotions and serious opposition. There are so many cross currents around this issue and the war in Iraq ranks near the top of the list.

However, what if the draft was to be defined broadly as two years of public service in an approved organization at the federal or state level and applied equally to everyone with very limited exceptions? Would that be so bad? Might it change the American culture and improve health status in America?

Maybe not, but it couldn't hurt. Might even inspire a few people and contribute to a national idenity. Oh, well, I'm showing my age, but it was a positive experience for me.
