Stop the divisions among yourselves

Ask not what you can do for the “twos” of our community, ask what you can do for the one

Editor:

Ask not what you can do for the “twos” of our community, ask what you can do for the one.

The one that matters, the one that is homeless, the one who needs to eat, the one who needs shelter, the one that needs comfort, the one who lost her husband and is the only one to support her children, the one who needs a smile, the one who needs dental work, the one who needs a ride to the doctor, the one who needs a load of wood.

The one you look down on when you drive by or walk by or walk by in the street and say thank God I’m not that one, thank God I’m a two and not the one, that wants for nothing. Or, are you the one in the two’s that have everything and want nothing, but seems to be waiting for when they become a three, then they might help the one.

If it benefits the twos on their way up to becoming a three. Get rid of the one who hinders your success in life, so you can be the one who matters most to the well-being of the one who needs it the most.

Divide yourself into becoming the ones that help, that love the ones that strive for peace, joy and goodwill to fellow man. Ask yourself, am I a two or am I the one striving to make this community a better one than the twos?

Forgive me for looking after number two, help me become a better one for the one who sent me in the first place. Thank God I’m the one sent to give the twos a wakeup call. Stop living as two and start living as the one.

Stop the divisions among yourselves and be the one in our community.

Merry Christmas,

Frank Durand,

Decker Lake
