LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Psalm 2021

{{featured_button_text}}

Do not hate me if my skin is white,

Or blotchy red, or black as night,

Like a kind of alien, unwelcomed sort,

Or just for being old, or fat and short.

Everyone is subject to what others may perceive,

Sometimes feel threatened because you live and breathe.

No need to shout slogans up in my face,

To promote dignity for the human race.

Understand the cost it takes to keep men free,

And that life's a struggle for everyone else and me.

Whether angels of love, or demons of hate,

Man's free will shall decide his fate.

Praise God then from whom all blessings flow,

And Christ who came to prove it so,

More than a man with gifts beyond the norm,

But Heavenly Spirit sent in human form,

Preaching love and forgiveness as the key,

For the gift of life eternally.

Wise men who've read or heard the master speak,

Know which kingdom first to seek

I want to commend 100.1 FM in our area for starting a "classic country " format. After listening for a week or so, I like it. They manage to fit in some old standards by Hank Sr., Merle Haggard, George Jones and Johnny Cash with some of the ’80s stuff by the Bellamy Brothers, Statler Brothers, etc.

In 2013, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution designating April 18 as National Lineworker Appreciation Day to honor lineworkers across the country for their vital role in maintaining and growing energy infrastructure, protecting public safety and keeping the lights on for communities.
