Strikes and slurs

What we don’t know, won’t hurt us.  Now that’s a statement that isn’t true – very untrue!  That is certainly true for us spiritually, it is true for us economically, and it is sure true of us in relationships.

Another topic – the students on strike in Quebec….Gabrielle, the leader of the student union needs to understand that there is little sympathy for their strike.  And how can you call this a strike?  The students don’t work, are not holding back any productivity, they are not paid for work…in fact what they are missing are the classes they have paid to attend.

Perhaps they feel that they are brothers and sisters to the occupy movement.  But not so fast, the occupy movement was in protest of the unbalanced power and opportunity for the 1%.  The students are being asked to add about $350 per year to their tuition fees in a province that has the lowest tuition costs in the country.  There’s no comparison.  Students are being asked to share a bit more in the cost of learning.

Sad topic – Joel Ward scored the winner last night to push the Washington Capitals past the Boston Bruins in the first round of the playoffs.  And then the internet lit up with racial slurs against Ward – seemingly hatred is not that far under the surface.  That’s why we need God’s transforming power in our lives to see others as God’s creation – we are all created in His imagine.

Final topic – tomorrow the annual general change for SA officers will be announced.  Our prayers are with those, and their children, who will be on the move.
