Who’s right, who’s wrong?
I have heard both sides of the debate on the animal shelter. So, who is right and who is wrong?
For this I rely on the wisdom of King Solomon. The most famous display of his wisdom came when he was a judge. Two women came to his court with a dispute over a baby whom both women claimed as her child.
After listening to both arguments from the women to claim maternal rights to the baby, Solomon threatened to split the baby in half. One woman agreed with the decision to cleave the child in two, but the other pleaded to offer the living baby to the other woman. Solomon immediately knew who the real mother was.
So, if the individuals who resigned to save the Humane Society were at odds with the ones who want to cleave the organization in two and let the animals suffer, it is clear who has the best intentions and therefore are the rightful people to run the Humane Society.
As an addendum, the nasty gossip in this town has to stop. There are many semi-factual and mean-spirited lies that have been spread about people without any basis in the truth.
If you have something to say, then say it to the person or group directly so they can comment on it. If you do not like the outcome of a meeting, follow Robert’s Rules. Putting out one’s candle does not make yours burn brighter.
Also, I would like to say that in reviewing the accomplishments from last year, I want to highlight that Gary McDaniel was chosen by the National Association of Social Workers as the West Virginia Social Worker of the Year. Morgan County should be proud to have a nationally recognized professional on its staff at Morgan County Schools.
