All salaam Sir Nobles, Lady Nobles and Sultanas May 2020
I’ll begin my comments this month by saying THANK YOU, THANK YOU and THANK YOU to all of you who responded to my e-mail of a couple of weeks ago asking ‘ How are you doing’. It was great hearing from so many of you and what your doing throughout these most difficult days. It was especially good news to learn that you are doing O.K. and are staying healthy considering that almost all of our members are in that vulnerable group to come down with the Coronavirus.
I normally do not try to preach or lecture anyone, however I would like to pass on to you some of my thoughts and feelings: For most of my entire life (and that’s a lot of years) I’ve tried to have and live with a ‘positive attitude’, no matter what I’ve been faced with. I see a glass that is half FULL not half EMPTY. Today in spite of the terrible COVID-19 pandemic I still try to have that positive attitude. Even though the world as we know it may change forever, we have to change with it to survive. Think positive……Follow the guidelines……….. Stay Safe……. Stay healthy……..Try to stay occupied……. Pray and keep faith in our God……. We have heard this said, and I agree, “This too shall pass”, and hopefully it will be sooner than later………
We of course had to cancel all Ben Ziri caravan activities for March and April, and it appears like the same for May. We will let you know if that changes.
Thanks to our ‘Grand’ editor Bruce Taber, who continues with the monthly ‘Fez Sez’ to keep our members informed as best we can.
Mike Caligiuri, Grand Commander
All Caravan Functions will be Postponed untill the Coronavirus Pandemic has passed. Be Safe and God Bless.
