"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Something Nice And Heartwarming

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Who Can You Believe .?":

Good Samaritans do exist, right today and here in Aurora.

I had pulled over in front of the old post office building where there are two mailboxes that still work.

The snow plows had done a good job and the snow was well over two feet up onto the sidewalk.

I took a couple of runs at clearing the obstacle but each time slid back to the street.

Suddenly there were three or four honks and I looked back to see a pick-up truck with a plow mounted in the front.

A tall young man jumped out of the truck and asked if I was trying to mail some letters at the mail box? I said yes. He took them and jumped easily over the snow and banged them into the mailbox.

I thanked him very much.

His parting words: "Some day the person needing help is going to be me and I hope that someone like myself comes along."

We shook hands and off he went.

Thank you, Evelyn, for taking this break. Given what we see in Canadian politics we all need to take a deep breath. I have no idea who I will vote for in the next election or even if I will vote at all. That is a first.
