KELLY: What do you think?

(Continued)

Lent is the time to ask forgiveness and begin a happy life. What do you think?

Interesting facts

• New Christians were trained in the faith during Lent and were baptized on Easter Eve.

• Mardi Gras is celebrated on shrove Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. In the USA, New Orleans is best known for its Mardi Gras celebration.

March 3 headlines:

• Ukraine on “brink of disaster.”

• Obama to push minimum-wage issue this week.

• Hong Kong urged to free the press.

• Separatists blamed for deadly knife attack.

• Showdown with Putin may define Obama presidency.

• Opposition in Venezuela stages protest marches.

• President criticized for policy on Russia.

And that’s not all of them! Reading those headlines really makes you happy about all of the world’s leaders. Reagan and Thatcher brought down the Soviet Union without firing a shot. Let us pray that our present leaders can cope with all these world problems equally as well. What do you think?

The right candidates

I hope you all voted on Tuesday’s Election Day. The primary election, the one in which you select the candidates you want to be your future leaders, is the most important election. If you did not vote, please do not complain about the future results. What do you think?

William J. Kelly is a Weatherford resident and regular contributor to Viewpoints.
