When are the anti vaxxers, going to be refused care at hospitals’. ICU patients should not have to be moved.  Surgeries should not be proponed for these anti vax people. Why should my life be in jeopardy because of the anti Vaxxers.

Where has Common courtesy gone?

-When someone holds a door for you what should you say —- Thank you!

-When a driver pulls over for you to get by on one of Nelson’s many narrow streets. What would be kind to do? How about a thank you wave!

There was once something called human kindness, where is it?

Thank you for being yourselves and reminding me how to be myself. It’s been a long journey and I feel it will never end.
I’m grateful to those who were kind to me from the start and not judging me on my past.
Real friends are hard to come by and I feel Nelson has shown me more than just kindness – it’s shown me love, patience, body awareness and that I’m safe here.
I do pray that we can work together in harmony for the betterment of humankind.
Thank you mountains for calling me.

Incredible love to the street level and substance using people of Nelson.

Everybody belongs to community. Many of us have lost someone. You are not forgotten.

Thank you for being kind. For reaching out when I couldn’t. For knowing that my lashing out was at the the ghosts of my past and not letting it haunt you. Thank you for valuing emotional grown and making room for safe experience. Thank you for showing by example how wonderful it is to be life affirming and gracious. Thank you for teaching me all the ways I was able to be better and grateful. Thank you for the chance to put into practice the lead you left me to follow, and new eyes to see how.
