Happy New Year…


Posted by Annie in Opinion, Twain Harte News on January 2, 2019

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year.  We had a few people out shooting their guns, some people complained. I don’t think anyone got hurt.  We have a strange mix of people up here: you have ultra-liberals, who I don’t understand, but I’m trying, and we have just as many ultra-conservative and not much in between.

Regardless of your political disposition, we need to listen to each other and try to hear what the other side is saying. Be prepared to change your mind, if warranted.  I have a friend I like to spar with.  His thinking is so totally opposite mine, but I find we have a great deal in common. It’s not easy, but I’ve learned to smile and nod.  

We live in a small community, so lets keep it small and personal.  I like that my mailman knows who I am.  I’m more than a house number. 

I leave you with something to think about…
