LETTER: We’ll Make It Through

LETTERS

I just wanted to say how much this piece resonated with me from beginning to end. I often think how people today can’t handle any sacrifice or challenge. We’ve had it too good for too long and no one wants to give up a thing. Any sacrifice is an infringement. And it’s often about the “me” not the “we”. This pandemic has really shown the community members who band together to do the right thing for everyone and those who dig in to take care of themselves … or so they think. Re we know clearly not getting the vaccine has huge risks but alas we hear this story again and again to no avail to another very sick person or death which was totally preventable. I digress …

We’ll make it through this pandemic just as past generations made it through their big challenging event.

We too as many I know will do the right things and stay positive and we’ll come out the other side one day. In the meantime I am so thankful for so many things and people in our lives.

It’s really the little things that make up a good life. And we will continue to enjoy what we can and modify as necessary.

Cheers Alistair! Way to hopefully help many others look to the positives and bigger picture!

P.S. I often enjoy and resonate with your pieces. It’s great to have this voice in Campbell River helping people stop to see the big picture. Much is right in this community and much to be thankful for.

We are lucky to live in this amazing community.

Luckily many feel the same.

Campbell River has a big heart!
