It has been said that the United States has lost its sense of the sacred. Nothing is set aside, made special, or considered sacred. People use to dress up to go to Church, go to the theatre, or fly on an airplane. Today informal dress, or even shorts, is the norm. Weddings, rather than following time-honored rituals, consisting of a creative ceremony written by the bride and groom. Even a high school or college graduation is often marked by catcalls.
Answer the question of whether you believe anything is sacred or holy in our contemporary society. Is that a good or bad thing?
