Letter To The Editor: A New Year’s Wish

White Rock

This year has been one of the most difficult in World history. It has forced all of us to cease ordinary activities and review and reset our priorities, our values in many areas of our lives.

What have you discovered: that what seemed important before has shifted dramatically, or not at all? What have you learned about yourself?

As we approach a new year, hopefully into some version of a fresh start, I’m asking you to consider taking one step to be kinder to each other no matter what your religious beliefs (or not) or political philosophy; to set aside your own pain, anger, or frustration and greet your neighbors with compassion and acceptance.

No matter who you are, what you’re dealing with, we’re all traveling this journey side-by-side. Let’s do a better job working together in 2021!

A longtime resident.
