I read in the Norwich Bulletin this morning that UCONN is planning yet another rate hike and, that by 2020, students will be paying 80% more to go there than they presently do. Wow! So much for Obama's plans to make education accessible for everyone! I am glad I'm not a parent struggling to put a child through college these days. I wonder: do these rate hikes also pertain to "undocumented aliens?"
I just watched a really good message from Fr. Cedric called "Forgive and Live." As he pointed out, the Lord's Prayer instructs us to pray "forgive us our sins as we forgive others." Sure, as Christians we all know how much we need forgiveness from God and will even admit sometimes we do others wrong and should ask forgiveness from them. But, what about when people wrong us? Not so easy sometimes to forgive, is it? Perhaps we need to stop and think about the patience God has had for us that has produced the tremendous amount of forgiveness He offers.
