Dear Editor,

With Australia’s second-biggest city, Melbourne, in total lockdown after the Coronavirus deaths of so many of Victoria’s “in-care” elderly; the impending worldwide COVID-19-induced financial massacre; Red China’s Communist Party’s threat to world peace and prosperity; and where “East-meets-West” NATO Partner, Turkey’s secular democracy, is starting to implode at the hands of its increasingly dictatorial president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan (with the great Mustafa Kemal Ataturk now turning in his grave), the young and middle-aged of this world would do well to heed the so very sage words of 19th-century-born Nobel Peace Prize Winner Dr. John R. Mott:

“Don’t overlook old people. Here is wisdom and experience for our asking. Here also, is a group we must give kindness and affection.”

Yours,

Howard Hutchins
Victoria, Australia
