Primus Mootry: Looking to the future and focusing on the people

(Continued)

There is not one of us who ever achieved anything without the help of someone else. And, I believe, just as we have been helped, most of us have reached out to help others. In doing so, even on the smallest scale, we made this world a better place. Reach back. Leap forward.

In closing, I will never forget a newspaper cartoon I saw some years ago. It showed a group of city planners gathered around 2050 map of their city. The caption? “Now, where are we going to put the ghetto.”

Have a nice day.

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