Now, in the southern and central part of New Brunswick, we especially thank the power linemen from here and nearby for helping restore power to our homes. The mighty wind and rain were the latest climate disaster to hit our region over the last year. But, once again, this event brought out the best in our people, whether giving a hand to a neighbour, helping out at the local warming centre, or doing everything possible to keep the home fires burning.
It has been a horrific year for the world, with wars, hatred, and death. We must do better in 2024.
This season is also one when many people and their caregivers succeed in finding strength despite serious illness. Still others mourn dear friends and family members they have lost. Recently we have also become very aware of the suffering brought about by homelessness, a hardship far more serious than being out of electric power for a few days.
May we all experience joy and happiness in this holiday season.
Peace & Goodwill to All!
