Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone.
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.
Sing, and the hills will answer;
Sigh, it is lost on the air.
The echoes bound to a joyful sound,
But drink from voicing care.

Rejoice, and men will seek you.
Grieve, and they turn and go.
They want full measure of all your pleasures,

But they do not need your woe.
Be glad, and your friends are many;
Be sad, and you lose them all.
There are none to decline your nectared wine,
But alone you must drink life’s gall.

Feast, and your halls are crowded;
Fast, and the world goes byl
Succeed and give, and it helps you live,
But no man can help you die.
There is room in the halls of pleasure
For a long and lordly train,
But one by one we must all file on
Through the narrow aisles of pain.
——Ella Wheeler Wilcox; 1850 – 1919

WINSTON-SALEM — Aonta De’Vaux Ruth, one of the men shot by two Winston-Salem police officers Friday, said one of the police officers rammed the car he was in, got out and immediately started firing his gun.

“It wasn’t no approach,” Ruth said in an interview Wednesday. “He started shooting.”

According to Winston-Salem police, Ferguson stopped a green Cadillac Seville driven by James Edward Plater, 32, about 12:24 a.m. Friday. Ruth was a passenger in the car.

Ruth disputes that.

He said that Ferguson turned on his blue lights, but not his siren. Ferguson then sped around a car driven by a friend of Ruth that was behind Plater’s car while Plater waited to turn…
