Today, the announcement for the new government liquor store in Montague was published by CBC in a positive light, gleefully optimistic about an increase in liquor sales next year, in their new building that will be constructed.
A new building that will break ground as soon as ….. next week. Ready for an opening in June, 2017.
Those dots represent the unbearable silence as we all take this in. I and others are rendered speechless by an action that celebrates alcohol over senior care. The irony and the tragedy doesn’t escape me as Montague has a significant unhappy population of alcoholics.
Am I missing something here? Oh. Moneyyyyyyy…. *I slap my forehead*
Tonight, I have less words to write, and more feelings. My pile of kleenex will attest to that. I went for a walk in my beautiful West Vancouver Lighthouse Park where trees humble you and the sea soothes. The sun came out as I perched on a rock. I thought a lot. And, prayed to my nature and to my Papa for an answer.
Keep going…. keep going…
