Today's Opinions

  • United we stand, divided we fall

    I’ve always loved our Kentucky state motto, “United We Stand, Divided We Fall.” The sight of people from different races and countries, on the street or on TV, is my cue to practice unity. Listening to all the voices in a choir blending together, I am reminded of the glory of unity. When I collaborate with my colleagues on a project, I vow to devote all my God-given talents to promote unity. For we all have the same color bones.

  • Anonymous letter won't shake veteran's patriotism

    To the editor:

    In the late 1960s and early 1970s, thousands of young men and women returned to the United States after having served our country in the Vietnam War.

    It turned out to be the war everyone wanted to forget – except those of us who fought there.

    Most of us were 17 to 22 years old, more than 8,000 miles from home and scared to death ... We prayed, we fought, we bled and some died. But we did as we felt we were expected to do, and none of us came home the same as when we left.

  • How do we find life?

     In Matthew 16:24-28 Jesus is teaching the disciples about how the Messiah must suffer and die. He then challenges them to take up their crosses and follow him. 

  • Three ways to forgive

    There are three kinds of forgiveness, all interrelated. There is self-forgiveness, which enables us to release our guilt and perfectionism. There is the forgiveness we extend to others and receive from them, intimates and enemies alike. And there is the forgiveness of God, which assures us of our worth and strengthens us for this practice.

    County attorney candidate's reputation stands alone

    To the editor:

    This is a first for me, after 44 years in La Grange, my first letter to the editor.

    I applaud the nine members of the Oldham County Republican Executive Committee in their selection of John K. Carter to replace the late John Fendley as a candidate for Oldham County attorney in the November election.

    As the only local attorney who has worked with every county attorney from George Williamson in 1966 to John Fendley in 2010, I endorse John Carter without reservation.

    GOP picks favorites? Not a surprise

    To the editor:

    A bird’s eye view locally (or nationally) of what is wrong with political parties was brilliantly reported by L. Hagan’s article, “GOP’s selection process under fire,” The Oldham Era, July 22.

    The fiefdom of Oldham has had power-fiction by a tiny faction of the Republican Party for decades. 

  • The Power of God's Love

     Have you ever noticed how much better you feel about everything in your life when you know you are loved by someone – your spouse, a parent, your child, or friends? Such love can give us strength to live life with more confidence and joy.
