Stay positive because there is still a lot of good in the world

Dear Editor: 

I really enjoy reading The Lawton Constitution. It is my main source of local news. 

It seems there’s a lot of bad news, and I can see how a lot of negativity can bring people down or make them depressed. After I read my paper, I have this habit to keep me positive. I put on Elvis singing, “C’mon Everybody” and — like I did when I was 8 years old — I am still “dancing” with my mama’s broomstick (guitar)! 

There’s nothing wrong with music like Brahms, Beethoven, and Bach, but I was raised with a guitar (broom) in my hand and I was Born to Rock! 

I pray that makes you smile. In spite of the negativity and politics, there’s still good in this world. 

Every day, count your blessings. Most of all, no stoppin,’ keep it rockin’!
