Thoughts for the season

from Linda
Well, having seen what TCU is up to lately, it is apparent that they are determined to divide the city council, and further the divide in this city.  Are these really people who want what’s best?
This is the holiday season.  A season for comfort and joy.  So let me share with you my wish for the season. 
My wish this Holiday Season is that the residents of Troy be healthy, safe, and warm and continue to be blessed.
 My wish is that as we gather with our friends and families, let’s remember how fortunate we are to live in this fine city and wonderful country.  Let’s count our blessings and look forward to 2011 with an understanding of who we are and how we got here.
Let’s take the time to understand our system of government and do our diligence to come together as a community to get Troy back to the fine city we became. 
My wish is that we put aside our power struggles and work toward mending the divide that is causing this city its fine reputation.
Let’s make a resolution to be dedicated citizens that take the time to understand our government and get to the truth ourselves.
My wish is that we all stay fine tuned to the issues and be an integral part of the solutions.
Let’s get back to the city that is a glowing example of providing the finest services at the lowest tax rates.
My wish is that we all take time to be thankful for those in the city who serve us on a daily basis, for it is they who are the intricate part of making this city run successfully.
Many of us take for granted what our taxes provide.  Let’s put aside our agendas and be grateful for what we have.
I also hope and pray this Holiday Season that we can become a community who works with one another, not against, to do what’s right for all, not just ourselves.  This is the season to be unselfish!
This is a season to be thankful and think of others.  However, this shouldn’t be only during this season, for that my friends is what a community is all about. 
I would like to end with a quote from Oren Arnold that sums up the season:
Christmas gift suggestions: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.
I wish you all a very Happy Healthy and Blessed Holiday Season!
