Editorial: Don't let Christmas generosity end with new year
The new year is a time for second chances and new beginnings. A time to reset and refocus, and plot a new course.
While the holidays remind of the importance of family, the dawn of 2013 offers us a chance for introspection.
With that in mind, what will you do to make Delta a better place this year?
How will you improve the lives and lot of your neighbours, strangers, friends, family and loved ones?
Volunteerism and public service is the most noble use of one's spare time, and benefits the entire community.
But helping out doesn't have to be an ordeal or a chore. It could be as simple as taking an elderly neighbor's dog for a walk, holding a door open, or helping someone with their groceries to their car.
For the more ambitious, there are dozens of service groups and non-profit charities based here in South Delta who would greatly appreciate your support.
Don't let the generosity of the Christmas season end as the new year dawns. Let it continue, and grow.
This year, let us think of each other, and put our own needs second, whenever possible.
And let us discover the value and satisfaction that comes with it.
