Woe unto us

Mark Gerber

Dear editor,
We are very privileged in our part of the world.
Yes, Thanksgiving Day here in Canada was celebrated and we certainly are very blessed.
I just returned from Europe and while there in my country of birth, the official day of “Dank, Buss und Betag” was held. This translates to: “To give thanks to repent and pray.”
We here would do well to have this same attitude.
According to a recent letter to the editor of the Fort Frances Times, only one of the four local candidates in the upcoming federal election said that she “pro life”—meaning she would not support the killing of unborn babies.
Woe unto us.
