‘Open hearts and minds and experience blessing’

Dear editor,

I have lived in Rockdale since the middle 30s when the dust bowl winds blew up off our Kansas wheat farm.

We arrived in Texas in a stake bed truck, looking for a new home.

We went to Phoenix, Arizona, and DeRidder, Louisiana.

Nothing suited my parents, so we were drawn back to Rockdale.

If you haven’t experienced the magnetic tug, maybe you just didn’t realize what was happening.

Open up your hearts and minds and experience the blessings.

Speak to people, not about them.

Lend a helping hand. Go the extra mile. Keep your troubles to yourself and smile and hide your grief.

Joy L. Kornegay 35 East Milam Rockdale
