Safe instead of Sorry

By Lucile

I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good I can do, or any kindness that I can show, let me do now, for I shall not pass this way again.

In 1940, this is what took place. I was fifteen years old. America was at war with the Japanese. The Japanese bombed the US and the US bombed them.  America won the war.

Jobs developed through the 1960’s. 

In 1970, depression broke out. The car industry had almost closed. Cleveland, Ohio turned into a rust belt.

2014. This may be a comeback city.  In the past few years, Cleveland had developed immensely. Several homes are being added at the end of the Hope Memorial Bridge on the right-hand side, near the West Side Market.  Who knows what the next decade will bring? For better or for worse?  For America?

My advice to Clevelanders is be safe instead of sorry. Be careful, not dareful.  God bless all you!
