Letters to the editor

You should go to pat pizza. Pats pizza is a place to have fun and the booths are comfy warm and fun. for example the booths are fun because you can watch different sports like football, hockey, basketball and baseball. There is a small TV in the booths. There are TV’s on the walls. Some are the same, some are not the same. They show the games like all my favorite teams like the Patriots, Red Sox, Boston Bruins, and Celtics. The food is fries, pizza, chicken wings, buffalo wings, macaroni, BLT, and chicken fingers And more. They have good food. My favorite is fries and peperoni pizza. The game area is a fun place for example there’s a candy machine, an air hockey game, two racing car games and an animal game. There is also a ducky game where you try to grab a duck.  Pat’s Pizza is a fun place where you can eat food and have fun.  So, you should go!

Dear Readers,
As the Christmas wreaths were placed (on graves) throughout the world  to honor those that gave their most for peace and freedom; my thoughts linger on my comrades that served 73 years ago on an island in the Pacific called Iwo Jima. My thoughts are also on those that served in the many other wars, as well.

We may contemplate there will be a Final Inspection, as depicted in the following scenario:
The Marine stood and faced God, which must always come to pass. He hoped his shoes were shining, just a brightly as his brass. 

“Step forward now, Marine,” God began. “How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek? To my church have you been true?”

The soldier squared his shoulders and said, “No Lord. I guess I ain’t - because those of us who carry guns can’t always be a saint. I’ve had to work most Sundays and at times my talk was awfully rough. But I never took a penny that wasn’t mine to keep, though I worked a lot of overtime when the bills got just too steep. And I never passed a cry for help, though at times I shook with fear. And sometimes, God, forgive me, I’ve wept unmanly tears.” 

“I know I don’t deserve a place among the people here. They never wanted me around except to calm their fears. If you’ve a place for me here Lord, it needn’t be so grand. I never expected or had too much, but if you don’t I’ll understand.”

There was silence all around the throne where the saints had often trod. The marine waited quietly for the judgment of his God.

“Step forward now, you marine, you’ve borne your burdens well,” God responds. “Walk peacefully on Heaven’s streets; you’ve done your time in hell.”
