8 June 2020 — OPINIONS

Yesterday’s blog about Edward Colston is still drawing a lot of comments; some critical, some approving. People have been quick to point out that he was a philanthropist and there is no denying that that is a fact. In my book, however, there is such a thing as ‘dirty’ money.

Had Edward Colston not funded the institutions he did, I am sure someone else would have done.

It is notable that yesterday’s blog has attracted more attention and provoked more comments and pointed discussion than any other of my blogs. I don’t know WHY. I do welcome it. However, it is important to bear in mind that one’s opinion is simply that — one’s OPINION.

AND, the POINT OF POWER for all of us lies in the fact that we all honour others opinions and that we don’t force our own on to them.

My writing is based on the understanding that ‘we’, (each of us individually) create our own reality through our feelings, thoughts and actions.
