Have a happy Lent, everybody
First of all, the New Orleans Saints set the course by winning the NFC championship and the Super Bowl. This put the population in the most euphoric mood we have ever experienced.
Then came perhaps the most joyous Mardi Gras season ever in the New Orleans area. This, of course, was helped along by our happiness brought about by the Saintsí spectacular wins. We were ready to party, or rather to continue to party, obviously.
Now we have entered the Lenten season which should bring us down to earth a bit. It is the time of year for reflection on how we should live through the rest of the year and our lives and sacrifice a bit in repentance for what we have done wrong.
Such periods in peopleís lives give them the opportunity to learn what is right and wrong. And it helps them put their best foot forward, whatever happens.
The recent earthquake in Haiti was one such occasion. They needed help and many people in our country provided it. And there will be many more times when people around the world put their best foot forward to help their fellow man to make their travails easier.
Those who want to make the† most of their year should take advantage of the Lenten Season to examine their consciences and make efforts to determine what went right and wrong in their lives and then correct the wrong in the future. And then, they should put their efforts out to help atone for what they did in the past and, in effect, right their wrongs.
We hereby wish everyone a happy Lent. After all, Lent can be the happiest season of the year if we collect our thoughts and put our efforts together to make this a better world.
And we can help do that as well-meaning individuals inspired by the message of the Lenten Season.
