Editor's Viewpoint: Child's view of world should give us all pause for thought

Editor's Viewpoint

Sometimes it takes us to look at the world through the eyes of a child to really see what our priorities are. Ten-year-old Berlyn Woods was moved to help when she saw a young, apparently homeless boy, begging on the street. And, with childish logic at this time of the year, asked Santa to do his bit to give the boy a home. Her concern is in stark contrast to the mad rush at this time of the year to buy presents we don't really need and spending large sums of money to sate a passing longing.

Perhaps we should take more notice of those for whom a warm dinner, a roof over their head, or just some company would be the best present.
