This is an open letter to the staff at the Antigonish Superstore
I grew up surrounded by nurses and, come to think about it, there were a few pharmacists I came to know growing up as well. It was very much a part of my world to see my mother, who was a palliative care nurse, getting ready to see clients, or writing reports, or going to see pharmacists about things that her clients might have needed.
Dear the nurse in the local hospital, the sweet kid bagging my groceries, and the woman delivering my Amazon packages:
Firstly, I'd like to ask you: What defines a hero? In these trying and uncertain times we live in, heroes aren't who we often read about in comic books or from DC and Marvel universes, they're people we cross paths with each and every day. they exhibit courage and braveness because they're putting their lives on the line whenever they get up, put on protective gear and travel to the war zone at the hospital. They're the same people who protect and serve this country within while assisting the most vulnerable during a time of crises. Some are people who transport those who'd been sticking by the invisible enemy and are in the back of EMT vans.
Dear Mr. Jeffrey Preston Bezos,
Everybody wants to be a boss. Whether you're a CEO, President, or a lower-level manager, the inherent desire for power remains a big incentive for employees amongst all industries. However, being a boss isn't all it's cracked up to be. It requires a high level of social skills, transparency, and self-awareness to be a successful leader.
A hero in the story can only be glorified if he battles a convincing and strong villain. Villains usually are the archetype of fiction that embody the fear, evils, loss, anger and darkness of the society. Another sinister feature of the villain is that he carries a kind of mysterious aura around him. Two very common sentiments towards these characters are fear and hate, which could well be transferred from the fictional world into the mind of the reader outside in the real world.
This article is a confession of my recent conduct when applying for work.The typical behaviour of many employers, recruiters and interviewers towards disabled job applicants is still discriminatory—and this treatment is what still happens EVERY DAY despite the protective equality-linked legislation in place and moral duty of care that is meant to be shown towards the disabled people in society today. The only difference is how much more sneaky the employers are at not getting prosecuted or held responsible for it.
I have known this man decently for at least three years. We went to the same high school and served in the Manual Academy JROTC program. As I've grown to know him, he's been more and more himself. In the past... well, for a while he was in the police academy. Despite being one of the star football players, he was really down to earth in high school. He dealt with all kinds of drama from people having a concussion every other week to struggling with Trigonometry. By his senior year, he was in the top three, "god powers," as we cadets called them, of the JROTC Battalion. He was the Cadet Sergeant Major, CSM for short. He led the weekly Physical Training, amongst other things. After he graduated, he suffered a terrible loss, that no one really knew how to help with. Somewhere in the midst of the homework and football games, he decided that he wanted to be a Police Officer.
