Have you ever thought …

The best way I know to help choose what direction our community, state or nation moves toward is by voting for people who best reflect our own beliefs. Voting is a sacred right that we have been given by those who came before us. Some have given their life defending this freedom; some have worked hard to see that right is not for a few but for all, and it would be a great shame if we don't vote and instead allow that right to be wasted.

For the love of Fall

Although fall hasn't officially arrived yet, I've been enjoying the milder weather as if it was my favorite time of year already. After all, what's not to love about this time of year?

Have you ever thought ...

The death of a loved one, or someone close to us, is very difficult to deal with. Grief is a challenge for even the strongest of faith. Grief is particularly frightening for those between 6-years-old and somewhere near 16-or-so. Before 6, most children can find some relief in fantasy, after their teens, a person usually has had more life experiences to equip them to deal with grief. The loss that death brings to any life is difficult but even more so for children and teens.

Have you ever thought …

Too many times we wait until we are upset about something to speak up. When we hear of a "town hall," we may think it is a time to protest something we don't approve of. And, indeed, it can serve that purpose, but it is also a time to share our dreams and ideas to make our community even better. Perhaps, even to lead to action that will prevent what would have upset us.
