Glad to be here
To the Editor:
On Oct. 27, I received a call from a friend I hadn't seen in quite awhile. After the initial "How are you doing? Sorry I didn't call earlier," he asked me if I would like to go out to the Elks Club here in Littleton. I asked what the occasion was and he said it was a tribute to the rock band, AC/DC. I accepted his invitation.
This is just a few words of congratulations to all the people of the Elks who put together a well organized night of entertainment. In the seven years I have lived here, I have not seen so many young and not so young people having a good time together, having a few drinks and not abusing alcohol. The LPD did not have to be called out for any reason. I was very content with this situation. Everyone was able to drive. I would like to applaud all of the people who attended this event, especially the younger crowd for their good and responsible behavior. Now, I am sure you are asking, "What is the meaning of this letter?"
The reason I am writing this is to say that the older generation of people living in this beautiful town have got to start to understand that times have changed and the younger generation would like to be able to go out and enjoy themselves. After a week of work, the younger generation should be able to go out with their friends and have the freedom to express themselves. Maybe I see things differently, coming from a big city, but I truly believe that the young people living here in the north country deserve more.
I have not lived here long enough yet, just seven years, but when I think the time is right, I will try to run for selectman for the Town of Littleton. I know from personal experience that communication, at every level, is critical to any community. If I ever get elected to a position of responsibility, I will do my best to promote good communication in all sectors of the community, including young adults, to address their needs and make life more comfortable for all. I believe that communication is the best tool in today's society.
Thank you for publishing my thoughts.
