Letter: New Year, new choices

  • Follow Letters

I have never been one for making New Year’s resolutions. Perhaps if I had, I could have accomplished much more with my life. Maybe you feel the same way. Now, we face a new year with the opportunity to ask ourselves; how can I improve my life?

One thing that would help is to stop making the same mistakes we made in 2013! That alone would be a big improvement!

Those bad experiences from the past that we relive in our minds – and sometimes cuddle to enforce our bitterness – it is time to give them up!

If you have hurt somebody, it is time to go to that person and say you are sorry. If someone has hurt you, it is time to go to that person and say, you know, you really hurt me by what you said, or what you did. Do not let more years go by; face the problem and do something about it! If the problem with that person is not resolved, then the burden is no longer on you but upon them!

Our society has become so indoctrinated that everything is relative, no right or wrong, and we must be tolerant of everyone and everything. We have become tolerant of drugs to the extent we cannot wait to legalize them in every state! We are tolerant of the gay movement, even though AIDS is ravaging countries around the world, and a religion that kills its own people is OK.

What we cannot tolerate is Christmas carols sung to the veterans in their hospitals; nativity scenes in public; crosses on hillsides that can be seen from the road; and especially, the use of the name of Jesus.

Hey! Do not let this bother you! We will just love everybody!
