Dear Readers:

Alabama and the nation are experiencing hard times on several fronts. In every direction we turn, there is bad news. I receive calls from close friends who have been laid off from good, well‑paying jobs asking if I know anyone hiring. I talk with parents about not having the money to send their children to college. People are losing their homes to foreclosure having to again live in an apartment with only five years of mortgage payment remaining. We are fighting each other, whites against blacks against Latinos against everyone without sometimes even knowing what we are fighting about. I could go on about the unpleasant things happening in “Alabama,” in our nation; however, I’m not going to do it. If you are going through difficult times, pray to God and continue to make the best of what you have. We all must keep grinding through this life, a life with many setbacks and heartaches. Let’s all be happy that we are alive and have a semblance of good health. We can get closer with our family and do what we can to enjoy our neighbors. Life is not for the faint at heart, it’s for the courageous – and that we are!
