Primus Mootry: A call for leadership in the 21st century

(Continued)

I apologize for the long list, but it is a very long list and it is very real. We no longer have time for 19th or even 20th Century games. Either we work to create a better future for ourselves, or an uncertain future will create us. Effective government at all levels is one of the keys. There are other keys, though. They are called votes.

But, as I have often opined, time is running thin. Hey, God willing, I'll be 69 in a few days. Obviously, my best wishes are not for me. They are for a better world for children everywhere. Is that too much to wish for?

Have a nice day.

Anderson resident Primus Mootry is a retired school teacher. His column appears Wednesdays in The Herald Bulletin.
