A Long Walk

Posted on Wed, Nov 9, 2011 at 2:44 PM

Ok, seriously, what's with this city? I'm sorry but I have given it the benefit of the doubt for far too long. One moment you think you can just live here and make a life for yourself and the next you see everything crumbling away from you. There are too many people who are willing to only get close to you for personal gain. What happened to good Nova Scotia values? I have been from one end of this country to the other and used to be proud to brag about how down to earth Nova Scotia people were and how quickly we are willing to aid others. I'm not asking for any handouts, rather I am asking for people to stand up for themselves and their community. Get outside and stop ignoring your neighbours, friends and family when their are times of need. Would it hurt to actually act concerned to at least one other person? When someone gives you their word in this city they should be held to it, and not by some misplaced sense of honour. Rather, they should know how the other person feels and empathize. It is far too easy to criticize, case in point, but that should be all the more reason to do something a bit harder and find out what your made of. —One Big Tims Cup
