Reading several times the letter Beware the Ides of March, Mr. Harper in the Record March 10, 2015 by Bernie Smith, I still don’t know what to think of the tone and what was really meant.
I certainly hope Bernie Smith is not trying to be sarcastic, funny or anything else.
With the world as it is, I believe as Canadians we should write less and pray more. The outlook for our world has changed dramatically, even though we seem far away from the troubles that are raging in our present world. Each voting Canadian has a weighty responsibility this year to choose the right candidate for the office of Prime Minister.
Whoever will be voted in will have not only to face a different world, he has to be strong with other world leaders. They together will have to be wise and united to face the fact that in actuality we are at war with a kind of evil that goes back many years.
Whatever you think or feel about our present Prime Minister, he is not a coward to make serious decisions, choices that could influence not only our own citizens but even others worldwide. Our world at this precise moment needs leaders of principle, again whatever our apprehensive feelings are, let this not be distracting our capacity to think straight about important matters.
In the coming years no one will know what to expect, in effect what I am trying to say is, let’s not show our dirty wash, instead, wash and mend as needed.
We might not find new ones as strong as the old ones have been for the last several years.
