The Time has come

In light of the latest act of terrorism I have decided it is time to draw a line. There is little I, one insignificant person can do that will make a difference, but if we all take this step it will help.

 

From now on all posts that lash out to anyone will be deleted and I will sadly unfollow that person. If I follow you now it is because you mean something to me and are treasured. But spewing forth: hatred for immigrants, politicians, fat people, thin people, Walmart in pyjama people, will be deleted. Expressions of Hate and Scorn embolden and spur those on to Despicable Actions, who might otherwise have not acted.

 

If you disagree with something or someone then act on it by becoming part of the solution. There is no place for vitriol. It is a tool of Evil. And Evil strives for Chaos and Discontent and Hatred. And all of these become stronger with expression.

A Personal Canadian Peek Mid-War

By August 1942 the Second World War was in full stride.  The Americans had not yet officially joined the fight but Canada had continuous training programs, turning out young men.  One young man who had enlisted at the age of seventeen on Friday, March 13, 1942  found himself at the Niagara training camp in August awaiting deployment.  While thoughts of preparation and defense were put into action, back home in Kitchener, Ontario, a young mid teen boy sends a letter to his older brother detailing the concerns of his life.

This is a glimpse, the vernacular of yesteryear is as heartwarming as today’s seems cold.  It smacks of Andy Hardy, but alas most of you will not know who that is.  That’s okay.  For some of us, ‘old lady..’ and ‘swell’ just bring back a wash of simpler times.

Enjoy!
