Thank you for the free food and lesson

A couple of weeks ago I was waiting in a rather lengthy line at a drive-thru.  I passed the time by being absorbed in discussion with a friend.  When I got to the window to pay for my food, the cashier informed me that the person in the car ahead of me had paid for my food.

I’d been so engrossed in conversation that I had no idea who had been in front of me.  The cashier could only tell me that the person paying was a lady with grey hair.  All I could see at that point was the back of her head and the car pulling out onto the highway.

Whether this was a random act of kindness or someone who knows me remains a mystery.  Either way, I am grateful and the experience taught me to pay more attention to those around me.

Not everything on this website is written by me

There are some in the community who think that everything on this website is written by me (Tona Monroe).  That is not the case.  This site was never intended to be a website solely with material written by me.  I own domains with my name and could just as easily write the material there.

There are some in the community who think that I agree with everything written on this website.  That is not the case either.  My intention in creating this website was never to have complete and total agreement with every word posted here.

The litmus test for content on this website was never complete and total agreement with my views and is not the case now.  My goals are to promote freedom and transparency in government.  Those are the reasons why I started this website and why I continue publishing on this website.  Those are also the reasons that I ran for office and what I hope to achieve while in office.

The content here is intended to be thought provoking while promoting freedom and openness in government.  Everything that is posted here should no more be viewed as my opinions than letters to the editors are viewed as being the opinions of the editors at newspapers.

As I’ve said many times before and will continue saying, let freedom ring!
