Giv­ing a help­ing hand

Central and North Burnett Times - - YOUR SAY -

Mayor Rachel Cham­bers (C & NBT 12/01/2017) gives sound rea­son why we should ac­cept refugees to the North Burnett.

Apart from cul­tural and eco­nomic ben­e­fits, there is also a moral obli­ga­tion to help with­out our re­sources to as­sist a peo­ple dev­as­tated by war and strife to a new life in a land they could only en­vis­age.

What does it mat­ter whether they are Chris­tian, Mus­lim or Jew.

We can­not re­solve their earthly dif­fer­ences, but we can give a help­ing hand when it is needed.

— Richard Roth, Eidsvold
