To the Editor:
Thank you to the Gladwin Fire Department and thank you to the person who was awake enough to the fact that I needed their help. I was too busy fighting fires going in every direction to know I needed help!
So it is in life. We are so busy fighting fires in our lives that we don’t know we need help! This country was founded on the Word of God for a reason. Please read His Word. There will be less fires to fight if we follow God’s directions and instructions.
Then our country can return to being blessed by God! Thank you all!
