Try to make the world a better place

Dear editor,

Most people hope for a better world and some are working hard on this.

Dear editor,

Most people hope for a better world and some are working hard on this.

With the kind of rhetoric used by W. Johnson in his letter headlined Cadillac socialists (Record, July 27), the writer left a nasty feeling as opposed to trying to make this a better world.

It is sad that at times we like to talk about other people in such a negative way, considering the fact that the world is a wonderful place as expressed by Louis Armstrong in his song many years ago.

In Louis’ time there were a lot of things not perfect either, yet he saw the goodness of the world and its people.

If we are serious in making the world a better place, we should begin with ourselves, and by the time that we are finished with “perfect and wonderful me,” we will be so humble and wise that we will have no desire to put other people down.

I understand where the writer is coming from, but please ask the question, did it do you any good, and did it make the world a better place?

Let’s try to be more kind and considerate towards one another. It’s an old saying, “If you have nothing good to say about the other person, then……”

Ary Sala,

Fanny Bay
