The Truth About The End Of The Year

To the Editor:

It is the end of the year and time to reflect on what is important in life.  It is time to ask, "What are we doing here?"

Last night I stumbled across photos of the 40th reunion of my high school class.  There were 672 of us and I did not recognize any of "those old people" who used to be my teenage classmates.  I did recognize the senior photos of two of us who had passed away.  The first one attended my small elementary school and lived near my house.  News of her death bothered me some.

The second one lived across the street from my Grandmother.  What bothered me about her death was that she died this year.  Even worse, she was diagnosed with cancer and died the next week.  The Bible is true.  Life is short like "a vapour."

At the end of the year and at the end of life it is important to find an editor who will print the truth.  The truth is that our national motto is right.  There is a God in Whom we should be trusting.  He is the same God before Whom we all will one day stand.  Two of my classmates know about that, but that does not mean that the rest of us live like we will someday be judged by God.

It may be sooner than one thinks.
