What happens there has consequences here

What may happen in faraway places could have consequences in our own town and home.

Dear Editor,

What is the ghost of Osama Bin Laden saying to President G.H. Bush and President G.W. Bush as the tragic disaster in Iraq unfolds?

“Mission Accomplished!!?” Which could mean: A severe spike in oil prices resulting in a stock market crash, leading to a deep world depression, social unrest, upheaval and anarchy. OR… Finally to propel the Moslem world itself and nations who face the same dilemma such as Russia, India, China and Nato to join forces in developing and implementing policies that would eradicate the scourge of terrorism.

During the 1940s war years living in Copper Mountain, our good teachers taught us students to always keep ourselves informed by reading and listening to the news, for what may happen in faraway places could have consequences in our own town and home.

How very true!

A good teacher is priceless and never fades away.
