Letter: Pukekohe Show
Thank you for your comments regarding negative social media.
It brings to mind, if you can’t find something positive to say about volunteer efforts, maybe it would be better to keep negative ones to oneself.
I’m sure there would be spaces to fill on the organising committee next year, for the critics.
I didn’t attend the show personally. But one gets rather tired of continual negative criticism aimed at volunteers efforts, largely by those who probably, haven’t freely given anything to an organisation in the community.
Let’s be more positive in our outlook on life. I have a saying that I always quoted to my children as they were growing up. There will always be a positive portion in a negative situation. It rather depends on your attitude and outlook on life. J. Eisenhut
Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
