Reminder of the right thing to do

It’s Christmas time and we’re reminded of the right thing to do.

Dear Editor,

It’s Christmas time and we’re reminded of the right thing to do. The high moral standard, personal integrity and truth. Not evident in the Toronto Mayors office or Canadian Senate.  No Nelson Mandela’s there. They’d never make it as a Scout or Guide leader.

Not only does the Christmas season provide employment but focuses on the needy, the desperate and the world’s hungry. When Mother Nature sends her deer, bear, racoons wild horses, Canada geese etc, into town and we don’t process them to feed the desperate and hungry are we not being selfish and immoral? We have no problem with Agnes the friendly cow in the form of a choice roast beef dinner after she’s provided milk for our little ones and affection with her eyes that is only surpassed by your sweetie. Remember, Abraham barbecued a wild ram. Saved his son.

By glimpsing the centuries old Christmas Story we might better understand morality, integrity and truth that is found in a babe in a stable who is the truth, “ the gift to the world.”  That’s really something.

Merry Christmas,

Joe Schwarz, Penticton B.C.
