  • Chronicle the elements for your life story

    What makes a good story?  What is our own story?  What nourishes us as we navigate the ups and downs of life?  How do we shape a story that encourages gratitude rather than rage, spite or self-pity?  
    Here are some elements that build our story.  None of them are sufficient on their own.
    How many of these elements exist in your story?
    The message that life is a gift.  We need stories that encourage our sense of wonder at life’s blessings and nourish our sense of gratitude.

    Religious Freedom
    I read with interest Mr. DiGiuro’s article on religious freedom in the April 23rd edition.   He dealt with an extremely relevant topic, but left out some important aspects inherent in a well-rounded view of this topic.  If Oldham Countians are to maintain their religious freedom, they must keep in mind a few of the issues our Founding Fathers understood when they penned the First Amendment.
