In disaster's wake

We've suffered a national disaster, which is still going on with snow on top of all else. Have any countries offered assistance? We should still help others, when we can, but it's interesting that we stand alone? I'm still hopeful for our nation and praying that Obama and our nation are able to solve our many problems; if we all work together, we can do it! Good thoughts to all as we give thanks for having been blessed by being born Americans. Let us focus on what we have, not on what we don't, and as JFK said, "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country."

Impressed by 4-H

Last Saturday night I attended the 4-H dinner and auction. Everything was well arranged, with plenty of good food.

But I was really impressed by the young people, how polite and very industrious they all were - a good example of parents and other adults working with our youth!

God witnessed act

This is to the person who struck and killed Paula Sanderson on the evening of Nov. 2 ("Driver sought after pedestrian is hit and killed," Nov. 6). You may think you got away with murder because there were no witnesses, but you're wrong. There was a witness, one you did not see, the one God we all will stand before on the final day of judgment.

You will not have a lawyer standing with you making up excuses for your careless, heartless actions. I would bet you have DUI convictions and were probably drunk on that Friday evening. Our justice system fails when it comes to convicting people who choose to drive under the influence of alcohol or other mind-altering substances.

Whoever you are, I hope you have nightmares that will haunt you till the day you die. She was left in the road like garbage. She was a human being. You are a monster.
