Let’s work to become better citizens

I want to say “THANK YOU” for the businesses and my friends on the Old Town Mall that have helped me during the COVID-19 pandemic in food and fellowship, and also giving me a haircut. I have been through difficult times, having pneumonia a couple of times, a broken left hip and scoliosis of the spine, and a lot more. It will make you a stronger person. We can be an over-comer and appreciate good health. My mother always said, “Every day is a good day. 90% is what and how you make a good day, and 10% is how you take it.” Prayer and faith are the keys to be an over-comer and we can learn by being around good people. Let us all work together to become better citizens during the virus crisis.

President Ronald Reagan believed and stood for down-to- earth patriotism and he made America great again.

I thought the best statement made by Martin Luther King Jr. was, “I have a dream that one day we will not be judged by the color of our skin, but by the content of our character…”

President Donald Trump had our economy going stronger than ever before and with our prayers and support, he will again do a good job like before the virus crisis and in Making America Great Again.

We have to accept who we are and go out each and every day to become a better person than we were before, and enjoy our sports. May God bless the U.S.A.

I thank you all.

I thought this was going to be a feel good letter but was wrong. If you want everyone to become better citizens leave Donald Trump and his vile and bullying personality out of the letter.


No offense to you, anon-ymous, but you have no clue who the writer of this letter is.


Oh, you prefer praises of the kenyan muslim who illegally spied on Trump in a manner 1,000 times worse than what Nixon tried to do?[rolleyes][whistling]


The "kenyan muslim"?

Posting junk like this must be why you hide your identity like a coward.

Lol! Back to your safe space, little one! Those of us capable of being adults will let you know when it's okay to come out...

Neither the "Kenyan muslim" racist lie nor the "back to your safe space little one" are an indication of "adulting". Just so you know

Doc Samson

Okay, thanks for that, Dad... I think most of us deplorables have realized that, since we're viewed as such, might as well enjoy the benefits!

Neither Kenyan nor muslim is a race.


Thank you, David!
