Hello Newcastle Seniors! After a short hiatus I am back to let you know what’s happening at Newcastle Senior Center.
The holiday season is upon us again. As many prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving, I thought it was important to remember the history of the holiday and the value in taking time to appreciate our blessings.
Over the last several weeks, I have been thinking about peace. There is not a week that goes by where I do not talk with someone who is struggling with anxiety, depression, fear, etc. People are desperate for peace, and seem to be looking anywhere and everywhere, but yet not finding it. How can someone find true peace?
Well, it’s a short week thanks to Veterans Day, so for better or worse it’s gonna be a bit of a shorter column this time around.
"In this historic election." How many times have you heard this over the past two weeks? In truth, there are some historic elements. This election had the greatest number of votes cast in history. Is that historic or population growth? It's also a higher voter percentage than we have seen in some time, but nowhere close to the highest. A woman on the winning ticket is most definitely historic, so much in fact that I am stumped on how to make a comparison. This past week most of the attention seems to be on Trump’s refusal to admit defeat. But that is not historic either. Many have called this the most important election in our lives, whereas, in fact, it is just the most recent.
