Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta October THE LETHBMDQE HERALD 8 Doris Clark Reader seeks comment for itheist DEAR DORIS: 'If you have any canned comments to use on an atheist, who is proud of it, please send them. This is a patient who curses God continuously. It makes one cringe to say the least. I was a geriatric nurse for 23 years and saw death many times, in many ways, but the few'times I had mentally clear patients who had no God, were the most sickening ex- periences I ever had. Now it is my daughter's turn and she is very reserv- ed and a Pentecostal, but if she hada ready-made com- ment she would use it. Good Luck. DEAR GOOD LUCK: It would make me cringe too. It is highly likely that an aged patient like this is experiencing tremendous frustrations at this point of his life, especially if he honestly believes that this is all there is. Do you think you might suggest to him that his deliberate cursing of a God who does not exist (for him) is somewhat contradictory? Example is still better than precept. The nurses who recognize oppor- tunities to declare their own Christian outlook, and who act like Christians by giving love, even where it is not-returned, are, I think, witnesses. But I would like to pass your question over to our readers. I am sure there are nurses and others who could provide us with a few forthright "canned com- ments" for your atheist- proad-of-it! r DEAR DORIS: I have found that being allowed, even encouraged, to talk with you via pen and paper has helped me a great deal; and I know from experience that a burden which is shared is indeed greatly lightened. I find that writing, along with many othqr things, helped me to take my mind off myself for a .while. There are still times when I become lost and frightened, but I find that by looking at things objec- tively I can usually face my problems. This may seem like a tremendous change. I haven't really changed at all. 1 have just realized that I am not alone and I have plenty of help.if I look for it in the right place. Changed Attitude. DEAR CHANGED: Well, isn't a change in at- titude the only thing that counts? The way we think is the way we are. I know from your previous letter that at least part of your salvation has been hi really taking hold of, that Christianity which was taught to you when you were little. And now you know you are not really alone. DEAR DORIS: I thought I had two close friends, but I guess I don't. They always make a fool of me and then my hot temper gets up. They lie to me, and I've gotten to the point where I don't believe a word anybody says. School is one big night- mare. Pupils hit me and make fun of me, though when these people are by themselves they are really nice to ne. Please, Doris. yourself as a person. If you behave with dignity and self assurance, those who laugh at you make themselves seem very .small hi comparison. There's no overnight miracle. You must learn to understand the frustrations behind that hot temper and start caring about yourself. Then you can give love, you -can get the temper under control, and others will NEXT EDITION OF THE CHINOOK' Will appear In The Lethbrtdge Herald Tues., Oct. 29th -Advertisers are reminded that the dead- line for advertisements is Wednesday, Oct. 23rd The LetHbridge Herald respect you in return. DEAR DORIS: Would you please advise the lady who wrote in about the cigarette coupons that she and her friends have been saving up for a wheel chair, that they should- be sent to the Ukrainian Canadian Veterans Legion, in'Winnipeg. They do a tremendous job in donating wheel chairs twice a year where they are needed. It is nice to know the Legion has a purpose to help those who are needy and is not just a M.S. DEAR Good for you and thank yon and others for the information. Now our lady with the' cigarette coupons can get her wheel chair. If anyone else needs the same information, I could identify the type of cigarette, and the address to which to send them, in a private letter. It is an often noticed fact that when an organization gives itself a purpose in life, by working together to help others, it acquires strength that could not possibly come to it through merely being a place for sociable gatherings. commit suicide, which is stupid.
