Kendall Worth: A message to my readers on Valentine’s Day


Dear Readers,

I want to start off by wishing you all a Happy Valentines Day.

I am providing this short message to my readers and followers of the Nova Scotia Advocate to let you all know that I have decided to take this year off from writing about Valentine’s Day.

However, on this day we must not forget about those who are single who also live in poverty. They want to celebrate Valentine’s Day just like ordinary people, but they feel left out because they are not able to meet someone who has romantic interest in them for reasons that are not their fault. 

Here are some stories I did on this topic:

Kendall Worth: Would you be my Valentine, if only I could afford it? 

Kendall Worth: Lonely hearts

Kendall Worth: On love and Community Services

All of the above stories shed further light on Valentine’s day and living the life of income assistance and poverty.

Happy Valentine’s day!
