Compassion and Benevolence

With their love, caring, kindness, generosity and hospitality, our Elders made our community – this Valley, a wonderful place to live!

With their love, caring, kindness, generosity and hospitality, our Elders made our community – this Valley, a wonderful place to live!

However, many of us are disturbed by comments on Facebook, in the past as well as recently.

Through the years, boats have sunk at our wharf, on the fishing grounds and we all mourned with the families of the fine men who lost their lives in these disasters.  People rallied, assisted in every way possible, no fingers pointed, no cruel vicious words.

Misfortune in one form or another is never far from us, and friendship, respect and concern for each other have always helped us thorough hard, difficult times and will again.

It seems Facebook gives license and reduces the intellect of some supposedly mature adults to a low IQ level.  Bullying on Facebook or off is unacceptable.  It ruins lives, relationships and has caused many suicides.

Our Elders also had wonderful “gems” of advice:  “Be careful what you say – your words may come back to haunt you and bite you in the back side!”

Another was the Golden Rule:  “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.”

Sincerely,

Lois Yvonne Casperson
