KTW a valuable jewel in community
I thoroughly enjoyed two pieces in the Jan. 15 edition of KTW.
The first one was the column by editor Christopher Foulds concerning his son’s questioning of God (‘Wondering about God since the beginning of his time’).
I, too, remember that age growing up in a strict Pentacostal home and questioning many things and never being satisfied with the stock answers (such as blind faith).
To this day, I continue to question the existence of God and struggle with the concept of religion and the misery it has caused throughout the ages. Foulds should encourage his son to question and he will be a better man for it.
I was also thrilled to read the letter from Ida Cumming (‘Idle No More? Great idea — so much can be done’) regarding the Idle No More movement.
I could never have said it better than she did. She was right on in so many areas and complemented so many theories I believe in.
Let’s get on with it and quit assuming natives have a divine right to be here because, as Cummins writes, where is the proof when nature has thrown so many variables at us throughout the millinium to question who was here first?
I am finding the twice-weekly Kamloops This Week newspaper an interesting and provocative read and look forward to its arrival.
You are a valuable jewel in our community and a excellent counterpoint to the Kamloops Daily News.
Keep up the good work!
