I took these photos inside a local shopping mall where they have this ghoulish display of skeletons, graves, coffins, zombies and other bump-in-the-night creatures. My grandmother would have hissed "Choi ! Choi !! Choi !!!" If she were with me today.
As it turns out, the display is for a fund-raising event for underprivileged children. The donated pumpkins, all nicely decorated, will be sold to passers-by. I even come across the mayor of Ottawa Jim Watson who is supporting this community charity effort.
As I always believe:
Society = Govt + Industry + Community
Each sector of our society has its own roles and responsibilities to enhance the sustainability (social-economic-environment) and the overall wellness (physical and mental) of our cities, regions, countries.
I am therefore glad to see such a warm display of community efforts and involvements here.
Unfortunately, kindness is not always available in some societies. There was a recently reported incident in a Chinese city where passers-by were ignoring an injured toddler who had been wheeled over by two hit-and-run vans and was left dying in the middle of the road. How can those ppl be so heartless !!!!!
Even tho Ottawa has its own share of irresponsible hit-and-run drivers, passers-by will come to the rescue, esp children !!!!!
Anyway, I am fortunately to live in a city where most if not all my neighbours are generally kind.
Happy Halloween ..... Soon !!!
And wooooo (woe) to those who are not kind >_<
