To the editor:
The need for everyone to have attitudes of gratitude is every hour, second and minute. Our most high being has made it possible that the average Joe can be a cup of joe for our everyday experiences. The call to lead is not answered by many and only truly fulfilled by few.
Therefore, we must remember why we came here to this earth and that what we do not only stays here but follows us for the rest of our lives. Hence, when we complete that application to work for the people of our community as public servants, we need to put away our personas for the proven principles that promote our populace. That is patriotism and compassion.
Every man who is a decent person based on human standards has the right to serve and those who buy into the people have a right to be held in high regard. In this state we have the first minority and female governor through Gov. Nikki Haley. God has used her to show our children the possibilities that are almost beyond their most fancied fairy tales.
Next, we have the first black to be elected to both chambers in the law-composing body of America. God used him, too, to be a bastion of assurance for the American dream.
One of the only ways we can truly take our hats off to these leaders is to build them a statue where they served. Plus it could bring new tourists, educational chances and a new vantage point for recruits who want to come to our state. More significantly, who else more objectively deserves these sculptures besides Haley and Scott?
