LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Posted May 5, 2023
I caught your editorial about “getting along”. I agree with your sentiments about it being harder to get along with others. I believe this is due to an extended period of complacency from friends and neighbors.
Getting along with others is combination of wanting to do the right thing and not wanting to be called out for doing the wrong thing. If no one has guts to call out people for unethical behavior there is no reason for selfish people not to act in their own interest and tell everyone else to pound sand.
As the owner of a media company, I urge you and your reporters to ask tough questions of elected officials, economic groups and citizens. Report their actions both good and bad and let your readers and listeners judge whether it is their best interest to “get along” with an individual or group.
When your devotional gets to the story of Jesus “throwing the money changers out of the temple”, I hope you share with the same enthusiasm as Apostle Paul urging us to get along.
Thank you for being a part or our community and holding us all accountable to each other.
