To The Daily Sun,
I usually write to The Laconia Daily Sun when the spirit moves me. It has again moved me.
After reading numerous letters criticizing everything from our president on down to the county commissioner and from spending my formative years in Manchester where William Loeb and the Manchester Union Leader were paramount, I wish to submit the following observation on our community in what I feel is part of the essence of our success. It is compliment to the good common people that we have in our midst.
I tend to observe a lot, having been a witness to some truly remarkable dedicated people in our local work force that no mater what menial wage they work for, strive to do their best daily to make our community proud and unique.
I have observed these facets and its just the tip of the iceberg. However; it is part of our sense of community pride.
Those great guys who serve as attendants at the Union Avenue Automotive Center always have a smile on their faces, are always polite, whether working in a heatwave, storm or subzero temperature to meet the needs of the populace. As well as that wonderful gentleman who collects the shopping carts at the Gilford Wal-Mart, he always goes that extra mile to assist anyone, always a kindness extended with sincerity. A hard worker, something I have always admired.
Those incomparable, dedicated and persevering "lunch ladies" who are employed for the Laconia School District and serve so exquisitely he districts' children. Talk about unsung heroes, they are second to none and are the treasure to our community.
The care givers and LNAs in our care facilities are an inspiration to us all. Their daily contributions are magnanimous to those who need assistance. The are they give is genuine. I am proud that I was one for a quarter of a century.
The staff at the Human Society who extend care and love to God's animals, cats and dogs, have given us love, loyalty, and much joy.
The compassionate staff at the Laconia Employment Security Vocational Rehabilitation and Community Action Program, who help all those who seek help. Their common ground endurance helps restore usefulness and dignity in everyone. What a wonderful resource in our community.
This is just a small example of the many positive and wonderful people we have here many others are out there, the waitress, the janitor at McDonald's, the taxi drivers, are all of great value and importance to our community.
As the song goes "Good morning America how are you, say don't you know me, I'm your native son."
