To the Editor:

To our ailing city, take a lesson from the world!

Though there are many partners in crime there is usually one leader.

Any organism or animal with more than one head is a MONSTER!

Our city has reached this status. With the signs of the time, there must be wars and rumors of wars even in cities, but we have to practice what we know and not follow our feelings, feelings change.

We have too many leaders and not enough followers, as a matter of fact we have created a new song out of our childhood album.

One little, two little, three little Indians; four little, five little, six little Indians; seven little, eight little, nine little Indians; Ten little Indian chiefs and cheat!

Let’s put away our childhood differences and work together.

People and their lives are at stake, our children are at risk and our country needs prayer.

We cannot run our homes without God, how can we possibly run a city without Him?

Please, let’s come together and follow leadership.

If we cannot follow the one we vote into office, how can we chair someone that we can follow?

A hand, foot,or leg that is separated from a body is dead and useless to a body.

A house divided cannot stand, much less a city.

A body that does not function in harmony is sick!

The Word of God is the medicine that cures all ills. Try it!

If not for your own sake, do it for the sake of those who are looking on and who may be patterning their lives after each of you.

What kind of example are you setting?

If someone follows it where will they end up? When you are old and incapable, will you

be proud to say “I did that?”

Bridle your thoughts and your tongue and body will follow suit.

Let’s agree to disagree and work together.

Wrong will fail and right will win, maybe not in the same day, but a city is not built in a day but in many days, one day at a time.

Whosoever is not leading and not following is in the way.

Get out of the way and let those who will follow.
