Marilyn Rowland: Love the upbeat letters

June 9, 2014 

I am a regular and devoted reader of Letters From Our Readers, and they are normally full of gripes, complaints, rants about politicians, and such.

But on June 7, I was happily surprised by the upbeat nature of all of the letters. All five were positive letters expressing thanks, congratulations, gratitude, or comments on an inspirational event. Oh, how I wish more letters were positive.

After all, we live in a wonderful country, in a beautiful state, and a fine community. I like to see the glass half full, rather than half empty.
