To start every- thing off, an extremely famous and wonderful comedian, Robin Williams made the choice to take his own life. Not even a few days later, an un- armed young man was shot by apolice officer in Ferguson, Missouri. When I first heard about Robin William's suicide, I was shocked. I can't ever remember hearing about a favorite actor of mine dying. Also the fact that it was a suicide just made it even worse. I loved watch- ing his movies like Jumanji and Aladdin. He was one of the funniest actors out there in my opinion. When I found out that it was suicide though, I thought about a post I found on the Internet that said that the saddest people smile the brightest because they don't want others to suffer as they do. Finding out about what he was going through, it amazes me how he never really let that show and always was able to make the people around him laugh instead of letting depression pre- vent him from doing that. Another tragedy in the news is the shooting in Ferguson. I didn't really hear about it when it first happened, but when I did finally hear about it, I was shocked. To hear that an unarmed 18-year-old had been shot was a shocker in itself. To hear that just days later police forces were dispersing crowds of protesters with rubber bullets, tear gas, and military grade defense systems, just seemed just a little extreme. I guess hearing about all this stuffmakes me wonder if this was what the found- ing fathers envisioned for this country that they were building when they were separating from a government that had become corrupted. l Your community. Your paper. Walsh County press z84-6333 Photo: Submitted Above: James Pettit pictured here with Hillary Clinton recently was named the U,S. Ambassador to Mold0va. WASHINGTON -- Earlier this year, President Barack Obama elect- ed several members of the government to a series of promotions. Among those selected was former Park River native, James Pettit. Pettit is the grandson to the late Edgar and Lila White of Park River and nephew to Beryl and the late Wendell White of Park River. Pettit was born at St. Ansgar's Hospital in Park River on July 9, 1956 to Rev. John L. and Doris (White) Pettit. In May, President Obama announced that Pettit would be taking over as U.S. Ambassador to the Republic ofMoldova. Pettit has served as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Overseas Citizens Services with- in the Consular Affairs Bureau of the U.S. Department of State since No- vember 2010. He has served two previous tours at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow as well as at the American Institute in Taiwan and the U.S. Consulate Gen- eral in Guadalajara, Mexico. Currently, Pettit is in Kiev, the capitol of Ukraine, for the State De- partment and will be going to Moldova for a three-year tour of that as- signment.
