We received a dinner invite to Josh and Megan’s home. We want to go to Ireland, they were going to tell us about their trip. When they married he brought a cat and she a dog . They get along well and were a joy to watch as we talked.
I was surprised, Megan arranged the trip thru a website that specializes in placing the tourist in private homes. They were all praises for the arrangements. They loved it, said the roads were narrow and signage was sparse as They traveled From Dublin south.
An article on the news tonight from Scotland, reminded me of part of the trip. The grand's told us their trip also included a small island, sparsely populated, where all basic needs must be brought in by boat. No crime and no police force.
That news I referenced, was from a small island in Scotland. It was their first criminal act in fifty years this past week a store was robbed. The owner said, he really hated to, but now he would have to lock his store at nights. It was his practice to leave the store unlocked and anyone needing anything after he left could go in get what they needed and put the money in a small honesty box.
Can you imagine anyone leaving a store open 24 hours a day and the majority of the time there is no owner or worker present? Many of the folks who read blogs are from a time when no one locked their homes and most cars sat with keys in the ignition, but I NEVER heard of a store doing that. It is such a shame that anyone would be that cruel to ‘challenge’ such trust.
I lament the loss of his faith in his fellows, but most of all for the person with such low morals to injure a trust that was so strong.
Our world has changed. We still have good, honest, solid citizens in our world, but our trust is now backed with locks instead of complete faith in our fellows.
I miss blind trust.
