Grads, remember that with every choice comes a consequence

To The Daily Sun,

My wish for all graduates everywhere is that you turn all your stumbling blocks into stepping stones of success.

Dare to dream, for dreams are the seeds of reality.

Set goals for yourself — short-term, medium-term, and long-term.

Don't give up on yourself or those around you.

When you need help, seek it.

When you make a mistake, admit it.

Take accountability for your choices and never blame someone else for your actions.

For with every choice comes a consequence, whether good or bad.

When unable to secure a job, volunteer. You man never know who's watching or where an unexpected recommendation may come from.

And for all potential employers, don't be afraid to hire the inexperienced. Who knows who you'll mentor into greatness.

Congratulations class of 2016. Good luck in your endeavors and may God bless you all.

Amber Flanders

Bob Henderson Jr. was passionate about protecting lives

To The Daily Sun,

It was my privilege to have served on the Gilford Budget Committee with Robert J. Henderson Jr. for two years until he decided not to run for re-election this past March. During our time on the committee together, we also both served on the Fire Department subcommittee. Many of us knew about some of his recent health problems but we were nevertheless saddened by his recent passing.

Bob was a very experienced firefighter and was passionate about protecting the lives and safety of the residents of Gilford and the Lakes Region.

He was especially knowledgeable about firefighting equipment and always wanted Gilford to have the best equipment available to protect and serve our residents.

He was a warm and caring person who will be greatly missed by me and all of the residents of Gilford.

Norman J. Silber
