A copy of the Optimist dated Aug. 30: wow! I don’t know if I’m an optimist or a pessimist!
Your news of modern university life was interesting-shocking and informative to a 1935 ex-student!
I am handwriting this because of 50 percent vision loss-so I don’t look so good anymore at age 83!
I now live in Christian Village, just one block west of the ACU library. To acquaint the new students, CVA is a 40-apartment complex where retiring professors, preachers, and their wives go to live awaiting the Lord’s call. But aging isn’t too complex, although sometimes it seems that the Lord may have forgotten to call some of us!
Somewhere in the scriptures there is a quotation-young men will see visions and old men will dream dreams. So young people, look up, look around and find your visions. Catch those visions before they become dreams. So may all your worthy visions mature and become successes.
Don’t tell the world what you are going to do-just do it-then let the world tell what you did.
Best wishes for a great school year.
