Canada, National Post loses a great man: George Jonas

Posted Thursday, January 14th, 2016. Filed Under My Daily Dose

To be frank I really did not know much about George Jonas. It is always interesting to read about someone once they have passed and you sit back and say, “Wow this man is so accomplished”. While I didn’t know, many did. He impacted the lives of thousands.

I just wanted to share one of his quotes that I found inspiring if not food for thought:

“Remembering the times you hurt people may make you a better person but remembering the times people hurt you will only make you a bitter person. That is the problem with anniversaries, Remembrance Days, monuments, memorials, Holocaust Museums, poppies, prayers, poems and the rest. They tend to make nations bitter, not better.”

Whether you agree with this statement or not, it is thought-provoking.
