THERE IS A GREAT animated movie for children (and adults) called Robots that my boys loved and watched many times. So did I, alongside them. There are many memorable lines and teachable moments, but the tag line that stuck with me was ‘See a need, fill a need.’
If only we’d each do that, at a personal, family and community level, life would sure turn up a bit brighter for everyone. The thing is, some people really do and that creates a momentum, or so I want to believe.
Case in point: the much needed and ingenious initiative on dealing with needles by two Kamloops residents, Dennis Giesbrecht and candidate Caroline King. I perused through many articles where they explained their idea (a nickel for each returned sharp). Many people commended them for it and sme even donated money for their buy-back program, others did the opposite, unfortunately.
