Thoughts for life A New York Times article is titled "Surprise, morn: I'm anti-abortion" The article said much to the chagrin of their pro-choice parents generation more and more young people identify themselves as pro-life. Students in a Red Wing speech class were able to choose their topics and one startled parent said she was shocked there were so many with enough confidence to speak about being pro-life. She said "where do these kids come from'?" Some are confused about their "ingratitude" to their right to abortion. Many young people said they changed their minds when the emphasis was shifted from a woman's right to the rights of the fetus. Prairie Five menu Reservations may be made by calling the Senior Center.

Think About These Things" by Rev. Wilfred C. Hansen PASTOR AT LARGE "O Lord, how manifest are thy works! In wisdom them all; the earth is full of thy creatures." Psalm Since 1969 we have had four dogs in collie who lived with us for many months. Each all five were faithful friends. Our current dog is a golden retriever named JD. when we sit by the fire or just watch TV,he lays at he sleeps at the foot of our bed or stretches out in JD is gentle, but an excellent watch dog. Anyone our house is greeted by a loud and firm bark. When umn he is usually at my side...as now. I came across the following in an old book of poems. for all who share my love for the "faithful dog." Gentlemen of the jury, the best friend a man has in turn against him and become his enemy. His son he has reared with loving care may prove ungrateful. nearest and dearest to us - those whom we trust with and our good name - may become traitors to their that a man has he may lose. It flies away from him, he needs it most. A man's reputation may be of ill-considered action. The people who are prone knees to do us honor when success is with us may throw the stone of malice when failure settles its heads. The one absolute, unselfish friend that man can selfish world - the one that never deserts him, the 0he proves ungrateful or treacherous - is his dog. Gentlemen of the jury, a man's dog stands by in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep ground, where the wintry winds blow and the snow only he can be near his master's side. He will kiss the no food to offer, he will lick the wounds and sores encounter with the roughness of the world. He his pauper master as if he were a prince. When desert, he remains. When riches take wings and pieces he is as constant in his love as the sun in its the heavens. If fortune drives the master forth an world, friendless and homeless, the faithful ask'. ilege than that of accompanying him to guard against his enemies. And when the last scene takes the master in its embrace, and his body is laid ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their waY, graveside will the noble dog be found, eyes sad but open in alert watchfulness, faithful death.
