Cars and shopping carts should not be in same lineup
Last week while walking down York Street, I noticed a disgusting sight at the Fredericton Redemption Centre.
There's always a huge lineup of vehicles in that area. But this time it was different.
Between the fancy vehicles were these two guys waiting to cash in their empty bottles. These individuals are poor and they can use the extra cash. I have been told it's been like this for years.
The owners treat everyone equally on a first come, first serve basis.
Sorry! I can't agree with this system.
Can you imagine standing in the cold or rain waiting for a few bucks? I understand it's a private company and they can do whatever they want, but this is very degrading to the poor in Fredericton.
What would happen if a poor individual got hit by a car? Who will get the blame?
This is the only city that has rich bureaucrats and the poor - side by side.
You see it every single day in the capital but to parade the poor in this public manner is very upsetting.
Fancy vehicles and shopping carts in a lineup!
Also how many of those cars leave their ignition running? That's very bad for the environment.
Breathing in those noxious fumes, while standing in line, is very bad for your health.
Why not have a special area for the poor who don't own a vehicle? How would they like to be standing in the cold winds or rain for a couple bucks?
Something should be done with this awful situation.
GRACE AND PEACE TO YOU FROM GOD OUR FATHER
AND THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
( GALATIANS 1:3 * NIV )
Now Grace means the freely given, "unmerited favor
and love of GOD," given to HIS Children! Thus GOD
DEMONSTRATES HIS OWN LOVE FOR US IN THIS:
WHILE WE WERE STILL SINNERS, CHRIST DIED FOR
US. ( ROMANS 5:8 )
Therefore, DEAR FRIENDS, SINCE GOD SO LOVED US,
WE ALSO OUGHT TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER. NO ONE HAS
EVER SEEN GOD; BUT IF WE LOVE ONE ANOTHER, GOD
LIVES IN US AND HIS LOVE IS MADE COMPLETE IN US.
( 1 JOHN 4:11-12 )
So Charles, LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL
YOUR HEART AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL AND WITH ALL
YOUR MIND AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH.
( MARK 12:30 ) After all HE showers us with more love than
that every day.
Therefore, I PRAY THAT YOU, BEING ROOTED AND
ESTABLISHED IN LOVE, MAY HAVE THE POWER,
TOGETHER WITH ALL THE SAINTS, TO GRASP HOW
WIDE AND LONG AND HIGH AND DEEP IS THE LOVE OF
CHRIST, AND TO KNOW THIS LOVE THAT SURPASSES
KNOWLEDGE--THAT YOU MAY BE FILLED TO THE
MEASURE OF ALL FULLNESS OF GOD! Amen.
( EPHESIANS 3:17-19 )
Have a Wonderful Weekend, Charles, and don't
forget Church on Sunday.
With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
