A good thought from Jim McGregor

His reminder of the choices that face us at the start of a new year is very timely.

Editor: I would like to repeat for added emphasis the thought from Jim McGregor, who writes a column in The  Times. (This appeared in the Jan. 2 edition.)

“We have a choice. We can fill a bag of last year’s troubles and worries and drag it along behind us as we back into the New Year, or we can dust off our hands, hold up our heads and stride into the new year saying ‘Here we are, bring it on, we’re ready for anything.’”

John Scotton,
