Open Session: What readers think

No day wasted - I love thinking back to when I was a student in high school in Hugo, Colo. Our much-loved principal reminded us often of this motto: 'Count that day last,/whose low-descending sun/bares from thy hand/no worthy action done.'

I am now 94 years old, and every day I make sure that I do something worthwhile, even if that something is only washing my shoestrings and relacing my shoes.

The sweetest sound - I wanted to share a story I wrote the very day I came home and read the Editor's Notebook about the wonderful effect that children's laughter has ('The Sweetest Sound,' April 12).

'Our Children'

I was waiting in line at the register, a situation in which everyone gets a little annoyed. We all want to hurry home to the million things we need to do.
