Compassion and hope

To the Editor:

When government or family bail us out after we make a bad decision, we are not accepting responsibility to find the right way to change for the better.

Government cannot be all things to everyone’s issues. America became great knowing the important issues that helped us all, not just a few.

Backbiting doesn’t solve anything. Immigrants who crossed our borders wanted to respect our laws and do it the right way, not the other way around. Lives are being lost for this special freedom.

If America cannot get a grasp on a budget and her people, we will be at the mercy of other countries that do not believe in our vital freedom to love like we do for one another.

Tough decisions cannot be made with our emotions. Truth has to be given so we can choose to keep America great.

If we fall, no one wins.

A good business lets her profits trickle down to us all if we are willing to give our best, like it should be, to let us all benefit and not leave all the money staying at the top.

Compassion and hope given is what makes us grateful, when someone truly cares to do the right thing.
