Kirkcowan – What's Going On?

DG Support – Community Bulletin – Ed 57

We’re currently living through the most challenging set of circumstances that most of us have ever known.

The global Covid-19 pandemic has seen 108.8 million cases, resulting in 2.4 million deaths. In the UK, there have been 4 million cases, with 118,000 deaths.

The consequences of Covid-19 are impacting the lives of us all and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

Particularly at present, we just can’t know what someone is going through or what they’re struggling with. What we do know is that we can make a huge difference to people’s lives simply by being kind.

Unfortunately, we live in an age in which, even people doing their very best to help others, find themselves subjected to internet trolling, abuse, racism, hatred, and even threats of physical harm.

We have only this planet to live on. There is no viable alternative planet B. So, making this planet a better place to live for everyone should be a priority for us all.

Fairtrade Fortnight, LGBT Purple Friday, dedicated volunteers, fundraisers, and other people going the extra mile to benefit others all feature in this edition of Community.

Let’s all take some time to be nicer and kinder to those around us.
