Applause to the givers

MOULTRIE — Dear editor:

A big ‘thank you” to everyone who participated in the 2013 United Way of Colquitt County Campaign.

United Way plays a very unique and important role in our community.  To put it simply, United Way is not about one cause or issue.  It is about taking a holistic viewpoint of our community.  It is about understanding the gravity and interconnectedness of all the social challenges we face.  And it is about empowering a community to work together to build real solutions for today, tomorrow and forever.

The fact is poverty, homelessness, family violence; low graduation and literacy rates truly affect us all.  When someone in our community has no shelter or a child at any one of our local schools is going hungry, the strength of our entire community is weakened.  There is no doubt, we are all connected.

When you participated in the United Way Campaign this fall, you said ‘yes’ to sharing your time, your talent and your resources in favor of the common good. . . ‘yes’ to working united as a community for the community.

We thank you for your participation in our campaign and the success you afforded us to continue to work to provide solutions for our community issues.

Marc DeMott

2013 Campaign Chair

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
