Perspectives change

Dear Editor,

I am 29 years old.

I know I could say 29 years young but, to be honest, I don’t feel that young anymore; I like to sit down with my cup of coffee and read the newspaper (if my toddler permits).

To me, that seems like an old person thing to do.

It’s funny how perspectives change.

When I was a teenager, people in their thirties seemed old and I thought people in their sixties seemed really old. But I’ll be halfway to 60 this year.

I also have friends in their sixties. and now I can’t believe how young teenagers seem.

Speaking of perspectives, what news sources you see can really change how you think about someone.

I don’t want to speak bad of our prime minister but they must have a much different news source out east than we do because I have heard almost nothing good about him.

I want to interject at this point and say what Alan Jackson said: “I’m not a real political man”.

I usually don’t go out of my way to get into political things: I see what I see.

When it comes down to Trump, I have heard a lot of negative things about him, but I have heard a lot of positive things as well, especially compared to Clinton.

I also heard someone say, “Out of 300,000,000 people, how did it come down to those two?”

I know Trump is far from perfect but it does seem like he is doing some good things for his country (providing you don’t watch only leftwing media). He supports life and liberty.

All this to say, I appreciated this article ‘Low hanging fruit’ from Jan. 16 issue as well as ‘Atheism responsible….’ from the Jan. 23 issue.

I appreciate the East Central Review and how articles are allowed to be published with Christian viewpoints.

We live in a country founded on Christian principles and still acknowledge  God in our anthem and have a Bible verse as our motto, so it’s encouraging to still see at least some elements of that in the press.

Thank you for what you do.
