"We have tested and tasted too much lover. Through a chink too wide there comes in no wonder".
The words of Patrick Kavanagh, which increasingly come to my mind as our social discourse seems to become ever more punctuated by a language which cheapens and demeans us. Am I alone in become ever more disquieted by the direction in which our society seems to be going?
With a lack of certainty where our values are concerned, I increasingly wonder if we have a leadership vacuum here in Ireland.
