New tower

I have just read The Morning Star insert "Vernon Jubilee Hospital New Tower of Care," and I am suitably impressed.

I have just read The Morning Star insert “Vernon Jubilee Hospital New Tower of Care,” and I am suitably impressed.

This has driven me to write – something I have intended to do for months, but have failed to do.

I believe I am part of the ‘silent majority’ who are apparently too busy doing things that should be done, and don’t have the time for whining and crying and writing letters of complaint. Unfortunately, by neglecting to write any positive letters of appreciation, this side of any issue is poorly represented in the media, and subsequently in the realm of public opinion.

If I understand the situation correctly, the extra two floors were roughed in for future consideration (when the need arises and we can hopefully afford to complete, furnish and maintain it). This is good foresight, making provision in the initial structure.

So instead of appreciating the new facility we have, all I read about is whining about completing the two floors (which wasn’t part of the plan, and something we can’t afford right now). Hopefully more people will express an appreciation of what we have.
