Sony, don’t let Kim Jong-un dictate what Americans can watch

To The Daily Sun,

Here I sit at my computer just six days before Christmas and I find myself compelled to write a letter. Why, you ask? Because I can.

That is something we need to teach Kim Jong-un. He and his ancestors have stopped their citizens from speaking out but they cannot do that to us. We have a Constitution adopted more than 225 years ago for which American men and women have fought and died to uphold ever since.

Sony, do not let a dictator dictate to you and us, the viewing public, what we will or will not see and hear. Please do not fall for their scare tactics. Let us Americans decide what we want to do.

Remember the following poem written by a prominent Protestant pastor who became an outspoken foe of Adolf Hitler. He himself spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.

"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out —

Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out —

Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out —

Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me."

I wish every person living in America a Merry Christmas, happy holidays and a happy, healthy, New Year.

Let's go to the movies.

Mary and Joseph were just ordinary folks, both trusting God

To The Daily Sun,

Each day, it's more murder, rape, lies and hurt. The next the same as the last, more threats and dug-up dirt.

If we heard the news and live as the world does live, we may become angry, downhearted, less willing to give.

A portion of our blessings, to others in need. But, we should share, even our faith, plant a seed.

The Bible says, "We must walk by faith, not by sight," Humble ourselves, admit we are weak, and look to God's might.

Often we put up a false front and a fake smile. But we should believe Jesus' virgin birth, without guile.

Mary and Joseph were just ordinary folks. Both trusting God, not wanting to be the brunt of jokes.

Obediently raising up Messiah for God. Joseph working with wood, Mary a mother and wife, not so odd.

Well, I'm just a simple man, looking to Jesus for hope. And this Christmas, instead of just trying to cope,

I'll ask the Lord to fill me with joy and continue on as I must, But look to Jesus as author and finisher of life, in God I'll trust.
