I have never written a letter to the editor of our local paper; however, I'm seriously considering it. The issue is the new bill introduced by our new Congresswoman-it concerns allowing people to sell home-cooked baked goods and such for profit. I really feel, besides the issues of health endangerment, that letting individuals set up on the street across from our bakery isn't in the best interests of our small town-our bakery had to invest in all kinds of safe commercial kitchen items to meet the law, she pays taxes, rent, and such to make a living. I feel like this is the same as telling me I can teach in my home with no degree, no education, charge students what I want, pay no taxes on that income, etc.
Oh, wait, we've already done this in America, and it's sincerely damaging our school systems as they loose students and money to home schooling.
I wrote my governor and my congresspeople recently about both of these issues.
Still pondering the letter to the editor, though......
Why You Have Come Here
If you have arrived here seeking sanctity or blessing, then you will have to provide your own cloak and dagger. I only confess to the daily struggle to treat the world with the respect it has earned in my estimation. We all look to the sky and wonder. I feel the whisper of the ages calling and know not what flutter or ripple calls true. My approach is to touch your life in only the manner in which you prefer. As we all must suffer at some time, then I feel we all deserve, also, the right to laugh. My smile is my weapon, and at times my words also I use to defend.
