Exciting news. I see some dismay and griping about the changes (we ARE conservatives, after all and this is what we do.) But, in a couple of weeks, most of us will have adapted and will be enjoying the additions and improvements.
And John’s improvements always make that adjustment quite easy and maximally painless for virtually all, I’d think.
Congrats on your son and Parris Island. May God go with him every step of the way in all his duty assignments and adventures. May he always keep his priorities straight and God ordered. May he always enjoy physical, mental and spiritual health in all his doings regardless of circumstances and external pressures. May he be a continuing delight to you and Mrs. Don-o. And may he have quality superiors—especially in the first several duty assignments.
