The United States should take in as many world refugees as possible

To The Daily Sun,

"There is a refugee crisis happening right now and the U.S. needs to show leadership and kindness by accepting these refugees from Syria and elsewhere. Germany is accepting 800,000 refugees while we are only accepting in the few thousands. We have the wealth to do it, so let's do it!"
This is what Fatima Kuyateh suggested for a letter to the editor. I think that we should take in as many refugees as we can.

"Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

— Emma Lazarus, 1883

2015 National Assisted Living Week theme is all about 'Nourishing Life'

To The Daily Sun,

Assisted living is a critical component of long-term living. At Golden View, we pride ourselves on caring for all aspects of each unique resident. That's why we're excited to see that this year's National Assisted Living Week (taking place Sept. 13-19) theme is "Nourishing Life: Mind, Body and Spirit."

Whether through our social activities, dining experience, or exercise activities, it is our job to ensure residents enjoy a well-rounded lifestyle with as much independence as possible. "Nourishing Life" observes the countless ways we nurture the whole person.

At the same time, residents nourish the lives of those who work and volunteer at our three assisted living options, The Inn, The Terrace, and The Cottage. Those we care for truly become family. What's fascinating is that many of them have made significant contributions to the Lakes Region and beyond as military heroes, entrepreneurs, public servants, and more. Every day, we learn from them and their life experiences.
