We’ve had earthquakes in Canterbury, the continuation of a challenging economic climate with knock on affects across all areas of business, oil spills and now the Nelson area is being asked to dig deep, to summon up the mental, emotional and physical resources to deal with extreme flooding. The cliché it never rains but it pours seems true, not only literally as in this last instance, but metaphorically too.
Given the prevalence of and prominence granted tough tales in our media it would be understandable to succumb to pessimism.
Focusing on the positive
But let’s not. Let’s choose instead to focus on the positive. Let’s celebrate the triumph and endurance of a Christchurch being reborn and be grateful to those who have given time and skills to help, not just in Canterbury but everywhere there’s been a need. Let’s acknowledge too, the small things that people do everyday making the world a kinder and happier place, not because they have to but because they want to. They may not be newsworthy but we know it’s those things that truly count.
