All are welcome at Day of Peace event in Concord on Sept. 21

To The Daily Sun,

"There are alternatives to violence" wrote Rev. Jed Rardin, pastor of South Congregational Church in Concord, in a recent op-ed. I pick out especially, "Good peacemaking rests on the ability to imagine something good." This ties well to an upcoming New Hampshire Peace Action event, for which the public is needed, and perhaps the public will feel they need the event. On Saturday, September 21st, International Day of Peace, we have reserved the Statehouse's front lawn for "Art for Peace." From 11 a.m. through 3:00 p.m., New Hampshire Peace Action provides the opportunity to display art that shows what the artist imagines a world at peace looks like.

Any media is welcome, with artists bringing their work to the lawn for display. Our website has a registration form. Lunch will be for sale near the street, front sidewalk. Art supplies will be on hand for spontaneous renditions of "a world at peace looks like this." Every age participant is welcome. School will have just started — maybe art teachers and Sunday school teachers can work this into their plans. Retirement communities may have art to enter. This is not a contest. This is a come-together time and elevate peace time.

Please look at www.nhpeaceaction.org, and see there, too, our August 8th Hiroshima / Nagasaki Day remembrance event.

Lynn Rudmin Chong, Chair,

N.H. Peace Action Education Fund Board

Have you got your ticket to go? I will see you in heaven

To The Daily Sun,

Thanks for informing us Mr. Maloof that you are 60 percent a banana, 90 percent a mouse, and 99 percent monkey — that explains why you write such foolish letters.

Seven out of every 10 Americans, believes that the Holy Bible is God's words; it tells us how to live, and how to die.

I am a Christian and not afraid of death, because Jesus Christ rose from the grave and promised that if we believed in him we would not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16).

Jesus Christ said I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10).

To have everlasting life all we have to do is repent of our sins, ask Jesus into your heart by faith, and you will become a child of God. Saint Paul said, For he (God) has made him (Jesus) to be sin for us, who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God, in Christ (11 Cor 5:21). Also he said, therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things are passed away, behold all things are becoming new. (11 Cor 5:17).

Friends, only a fool says there is no God, God loves you, His son died for you and your eternal future, he wants you to share with Him, in God's wonderful kingdom.

God created all things, everything your eyes can see, the sun, stars, moon, animals, birds, fish, etc, but friend's he made (created) you special, not from a banana, a mouse, or a monkey, he made you in His own image. He breathed into you a living soul (life). I'm excited about death, because it is an open door to eternal life, if God made such a beautiful Earth , "Friends" what must heaven be like.

Have you go your ticket to go? Put your hand into the nail pierced hand of our Savior, Jesus Christ, and I will see you there.

I get 2 to 4 calls a day from people trying to sell me something

To The Daily Sun,

I was wondering if anyone else has subscriptions to a magazine or two, because I have. The problem was I gave a subscription to a daughter and I wasn't going to do it another year so I did not renew it. Well I received a bill for another year! I called and they told me I had!

It had showed up on their computer that I had and I told them I hadn't. Well I decided to let it go this time. Then I was still receiving magazines myself and I hadn't ever renewed a bill for another year. I called and they told me the same story. But I hadn't. But I did want it because I really like their magazine. It is very helpful in products you buy and if they are good or not and subjects cover all sorts of things and there are no ads in them.

Well that settled, I received mail from another magazine company and they had a contest with thickets saying you may have the winning ticket for a new car and then they asked if you wanted a subscription. I checked no!

Well a while later I started receiving a bill for a magazine but I put off paying for it. I wouldn't owe that if I had not ordered it because it was in the line of the other magazine I was reading and liked so much. But I still did not send in a payment. Well about three weeks later I received a magazine. Then I realized that the magazine was for the bills I was receiving and I realized I did not order this. So I put cancel on the bill and sent it to them. Meanwhile, I received the free copy they promised to send with the subscription. Well I do like the magazine very much and I can compare what each one has to say that will help with shopping and buying and products that are good and things and companies to stay away from! So I may subscribe. 

Also, I get anywhere from two to four phone calls a day to try to sell me something and I have been receiving calls for almost a week now. Some calls after 8 p.m. I am so sick of it and I was wondering what I could do about them. Now I pick up the phone and hang up on them. Just received another call!

Thanks for allowing GMP to be part of July 27 Antique Boat Show

To The Daily Sun,

On behalf of the Greater Meredith Program's Board of Directors and its Promotions Committee, I want to express our appreciation to the Antique Boat Show Society/NE Chapter for letting us be a part of the Antique Boat Show in Hesky Park on Saturday, July 27 — to promote the GMP. We would also like to thank the following businesses who donated to our raffle: Shep Brown's Boat Basin; EKAL Activity Center; Meredith; Y- Landing Marina; Shorline Marine Upholstery and American Police Motorcycle Museum. Winners of the raffle were Dave Strathern from Gilford and Karen Thondike, Nancy Lavigne and Karen Page from Meredith.

We also appreciate the assistance from the Town of Meredith and the Public Works Department who helped us organize the "Drop Anchor on Main Street" dance in Community Park on Saturday evening. A very special thanks goes to the "After 6 Band" led by Steve Kelley, I-L Elementary School Principal, for donating their time and music to the event. Thanks to the support and generosity of the GMP volunteers, our business sector and the community, Meredith is indeed a great place to live, work and play.
