We need to be like the links of a chain

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

I fear that many hear and see what’s coming, yet few do.

It’s my experience that most care [about] their own wants and not the needs of the whole. We all want a comfortable time and don’t care if others suffer. We’re all in the same sinking ship of state. What will happen if we all don’t start bailing and working together to save the ship?

We need a common effective way to bail, but how? I see so many different buckets and I pray correctness with intelligence prevails.

So many believe that their bucket is right for the job, yet they don’t align for the common effort that’s needed. What do we do? With few compromising, no common efforts will ever take place.

Common means the same, as in members of a unit or links in a chain. We all need to be as links in a chain. Yet, I do not see a joint effort to resolve our country’s situation and restore the spirit that brought her greatness, without everyone sincerely giving.

Last week, I reflected on my early idea, which the end result would be to help people and country. Today what would be needed to help? What would be the common denominator to bring help to people and country?

Common ground can be found that I know will bring sincere dialogue. I’m for positive dialogue that brings positive reaction with good points for all and no false statements, as with retired town of Greenwich Marine Division boss Fred Walters.

I know sincere communication with respect will bring understanding of differences with a positive dialogue.

Understanding through respect with no untruths may be the best help for people and country. I know respect will bring understanding through sincere communication. A renewed respect that would also bring a strong new brand of kindness through understand, create new effective buckets, to bail out and save ourselves with our ship of state.
