To be neighbors one to another. To make an effort to help one an- other out, locally as well as with those devastated folks up north. Sure, our little dab of money is not going to be a drop in the bucket beside the billions and billions of dollars needed for the rebuilding and protecting our country. But I've got this theory that there is something far more im- portant than dollars going on here. Some people call it "good infection," Love and caring replicate themselves over and help in these tragic times.

All week, a line from a song has been going over and over in my mind. "Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me." I'm going to try to take that prayer to heart. I have a grudge or two, not big, but grudges still. I'm going to see if I can get rid of them. Because if good will multiplies itself, bad will seems to multi- ply itself even faster. And heaven knows there's way too much of that in the world with- of the suggestions on the MSNBC website interested me. It said we should things; that holding back on normal spending for fear of economic hard times could be a self-ful- filling prophecy. I had a little problem with that, as I have been trying to cut my spending way down. But one of the other things they recommended was to conserve energy. That struck a chord. I had planned to get new insulated doors and windows last winter, and it got put off, and then spring came and I didn't need them, and then summer came and I put it off again. I could have already paid a big part of the cost of those doors and windows with gas and electricity savings if I had just gone ahead and done it when I started to. This sounds like something I could do now. I'll get something new and pretty guilt free, and my house will be more comfortable. I'll save money I won't de- plete our energy supply as much, and I'll be showing my confidence in our government. There's another good thing to do if we can do if we get a chance, i don't think we have many folks around here that look like they are from the Middle East, but there are a few. If I do run into one of them, I'm going to make a point to be especially friendly. Those folks are hurting and scared just like the rest of us, only they Continued on page 7B City State Zip Subscription Rates $17.00 per year in Henderson County $22.00 per year elsewhere in Texas $25.00 per year outside Texas The Malakoff News P.O.
