Be kind to others


To the Editor:

One week, a letter to the editor contends that we should vote on one issue above all others. The next week a letter asserts that to vote on one issue is closeminded.

A person who decides to vote on one issue may carefully consider all of the issues but in the end decide that one issue is paramount. A person who seemingly votes against this issue may consider this issue important but feel that voting for this issue would lead to neglect of others.

In the end, each person has to examine his own conscience and decide what is best. Let us be kind to one another and not make assumptions about the character and heart of someone based on their political views. Let us assume that we each want what is best, no matter which way we vote.
