To the Editor:
Although the next federal election will not be until October 2015, I am already gearing up for it because it may just be on of the most historic in Canadian history. I’m politically, philosophically and fiscally conservative myself, but also a progressive thinker who possesses a very warm heart, is compassionate, sentimental, emotional, spiritual, and has a great sense of humour.
I believe that by harnessing the power of positive thinking, having faith and working together, regardless of political, social, cultural or economic status, we could eliminate poverty, hunger, disease, illiteracy, crime, racism, bigotry, greed, corruption, bullying, anti-Semitism, pollution, global warming and terrorism, along with any, and all, extremist ideologies. Achieving complete equality between men and women is important, as well as protecting health care, education, creating employment for everyone, working with union and non-union employees, encouraging multiculturalism, a free market economic system and protecting same-sex marriage, and lest we forget our veterans, who fought to preserve freedom and democracy in the name of world peace — not to mention helping people during natural disasters, which I have done myself, through donations, in the past.
To close my letter, I would like to wish everyone in my hometown of Creston a merry Christmas, and a happy Saint Nicholas Day (Dec. 6). And never forget to always be kind to others, help those who are less fortunate, appreciate what you have, think positively, be optimistic and never give up hope because angles exist and miracles occur. Peace on Earth, good will to all men, women and children of the world, regardless of your faith. May the Lord watch over you every day of the year. Best wishes in 2014.
