  • "So live your life that the fear of death can
    never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in
    their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your
    life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its
    purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day
    when you go over the great divide.


    Always give a word or a sign of salute when
    meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show
    respect to all people and grovel to none.


    When you arise in the morning give thanks for
    the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the
    fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the
    wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.


    When it comes your time to die, be not like
    those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time
    comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again
    in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going
    home."

Cuts fall-out

First published in Letters

MORE than 1,800 Caerphilly county borough residents waited over an hour for a first response after calling 999 for an ambulance last year.

There are deeply ingrained problems within our emergency care services and these figures lay bare their true extent.

Despite the hard work of front line staff, more evidence of severe delays and unacceptable waits makes for hugely distressing reading. While committed staff put in long hours and huge sacrifices, the Welsh NHS continues to struggle to deliver a step challenge in performance as a result of Labour’s record-breaking NHS budget cuts.
