Hello and we hope that everyone is continuing to stay safe and weather the
storm presently gripping our
world. We know that things will get better and we each need to do our part
in order to make this a reality much sooner than later.
Today, I am pleased to share our president’s weekly editorial with you and
for this week Donna J. Jodhan discusses some hard lessons for us to learn.
I’m Scott Savoy wishing you a safe weekend.
Hard lessons for us
It may not be too early for us to start compiling some of the hard lessons
that we are being forced to learn; we probably have no choice in this matter
and if we have any hope of coming out of the Corona virus storm to live
another day then we might as well accept them, learn them, and pass them on.
First off, it may be a better idea to not call this a storm but a gigantic
Next, we may be better to look at this giant tsunami as one that many will
survived, many will not, and many more will be touched by such things as
personal or economic tragedy. Finally, we will learn that this so-called
tsunami is undoubtedly going to affect the world for generations to come.
So what are some of the more potent lessons that we are continuing to learn?
* That we need to take more and committed care of our seniors and the more
We need to keep uppermost in our mind that our seniors are the ones who have
been solely responsible for our well being. Without their personal,
economic and financial support, we would not be here today.
* That absolutely no one is invincible. So that when we see videos of
college kids partying on beaches and not seeming to care about the well
being of others especially their parents, grandparents, and even their
neighbours and friends; it only serves to show us that we need to rid our
surroundings of selfish folks who need to grow up and realize that it is not
just about themselves! It is about everyone and a sobering example for them
to remember is that if the kids who fought to save the world from evil
forces during the world wars by giving up their own lives, they would not be
here today to enjoy their lives.
* That it is all about teamwork. All for one and one for all. We simply
cannot expect to weather this situation unless we all work together.
* That we need to work on minimizing the fear mongering and replace it with
care mongering. One of the quickest ways to be come anxious and stressed
out is for us to allow fear to enter our minds and beings.
* We need to be more responsible for our actions. Hoarding goods because we
are afraid or because we are simply selfish and greedy only hurts others.
Each time we over buy and hoard we deprive another person of being able to
cope with difficult times.
Each time we ask our pharmacist to fill our prescriptions for more than the
stipulated amount, we are not just hoarding but we are also depriving others
from having their prescriptions filled.
What we can take away from this entire situation is that not even technology
alone can save us. We need to use other variables in addition to
technology; this being ourselves, our attitudes, and our commitment to help
and respect each other.
Finally, let us not forget that our actions will not just affect us alone;
they will affect others. Our family, friends, neighbours, and o yes! Our
city and our country and in a tiny way the rest of the world!
Just my two cents for today.
