Act of love and caring warms my heart

MURPHY, N.C. — Dear editor:

"Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He lives in the hearts of others." I may have misquoted that, but I wanted to share with you this act of caring and love. Our daughter, Carrie, and her husband , a Marine, stationed in North Carolina (Lewis) just did an amazing thing. One of their neighbors, also a Marine family, could not afford much of a Christmas due to unusual circumstances. Lewis and Carrie went to the other family's home while they were out and decorated their home. They also bought groceries for them.

I am full of pride right now because of this act of love and caring. The spirit of Christmas is alive and well in the hearts of others . Do something for others . In this time of horrific tragedies and greed,it is so beautiful when one hears or sees acts of kindness and love for others. May your heart be full of caring and support for others. May your greatest gift be a gift of time or charity.

Cobby and Diane Barfield

Murphy, N.C.

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.
