Lord has shown his light on us; let's be grateful for Donald's election

To The Daily Sun,

I read the letter Denise Burke wrote in answer to my letter, which cited the case of Matthew Shepard. I had not known that he suffered as much as he did. However, her letter confirmed my basic contention that he had not been killed for being gay, but as part of a crime. I did not drag him into the political debate. His mother did. However, my letter did minimize the crime committed against him. It was insensitive. I stand corrected. I apologize to Matthew.

Denise also wrote, "he was a student, a friend, a son, a brother and he was loved and his is missed. He also had AIDS. Will that help you more to slander his name?" The tone of this question leads me to believe that Denise thinks that because I am a Trump supporter I am an ignorant, bigoted hick. That's actually not the case. I am not a homophobe. I was simply pointing to how his mother used him to promote her political agenda.

By the way, the turtle at Camaro Heaven in Tilton actually is "abused." She enclosed that word in quotes to once again try to make me look stupid, but if she takes a drive over to Camaro Heaven and looks inside she will see an animal in a very unfortunate situation, stuck in an enclosure much too small and anyone with any sensitivity will not deny the obvious suffering involved. The business is on Clark Road in Tilton, if anyone is interested.

And lastly, just let me say how thrilled I am that the Donald won. It's a good day in America. The Lord has shone His light on us. Let's be grateful.

Don't delay; get your tickets to hear North Shore A Cappella

To The Daily Sun,

North Shore A Cappella lends their voices to support Domestic Violence Shelters in the Lakes Region.
What an opportunity.

Residing here in the middle of New Hampshire has its benefits as well as shortcomings. No one could ask for a prettier and a friendlier place to live, but we don't often have the opportunity to see live performances from nationally known artists. Well, on Nov. 19 one of those rare opportunities will present itself. North Shore A Cappella will perform at the McEvoy Theater at The New Hampton School, located just off Exit 23 on Interstate 93. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. with homemade refreshments and soft drinks. The music will begin at 7:30 p.m. Ticket prices are $27.50 a piece and include the refreshments. They are available at www.tbinh.org.

North Shore has won national acclaim after its appearance on NBC's "Sing Off" television competition program. The group has been performing for 30 years (a period of time older than most of the TV show's competitors). They have opened for a number of great acts including Roberta Flack, The Temptations, and most recently, Jay Leno.

Not only is there an opportunity to have a great evening out at, but all the net proceeds from this event will go to Voices Against Violence of Plymouth and New Beginnings of Laconia. Both organizations provide shelter and services for those affected by domestic and sexual violence.

Tickets are still available at www.tbinh.org. Don't delay. Seating is limited; so, act now.

Golden View Rehabilitation Center in Meredith is the 2016 We Care Event sponsor for this concert.
