Gun control, abortion, politics, the government’s role in our lives, race relations – is there anything Americans can agree on? A good start would be to remember and honor the lives lost at Sandy Hook.

Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. Just let it go.

On an overcast, dreary December day, I found a ray of sunshine in the form of a lone, bright-yellow dandelion bloom among my dried, brown leaves. Usually, I don’t get pleasure from the sight of a dandelion, but seeing it made me smile. Thank you, Mother Nature.

A million thanks to the person who paid off my layaway. It was such a blessing. I’ve never had that happen before, and I plan on blessing others as I can so they can have the same wonderful feeling. God bless you.

Love is covering someone with a blanket while they are sleeping.

To all law officers and military personnel: Thank you. Please be careful when you go about your duties. Your families need you to get home safely, and the rest of us need you on the job tomorrow.

Pearl Harbor will always be a vivid memory for one who was 7 years old at the time. Americans immediately banded together as a unified nation and did all we were able, in order to support the armed forces. Americans owe our freedom to those forces to this day.

I have a problem with the title of “Greatest Generation.” I respect their service and they are great. But the title leaves no room for future greatness. The boys and girls fighting overseas among people who hate us today deserve many thanks, and respect as great as that for the “Greatest Generation.”

Nat King Cole is where it’s at. Give me the Christmas songs from the 1950s.

Eggnog should be sold year-round.

I would like to thank the Air Capital Chorus for a wonderful concert in support of the Kansas Food Bank. Keep the whole world singing, guys.

Thank you, E-Eagle. Instead of putting on my parka and mukluks to venture outside in the dreadful weather to collect the paper Thursday, I just turned on the iPad in the comforts of home.

Travel light, live light, spread the light, be the light. And forgive.
