Mayor Sherbin Collette says that he never makes a promise.
Here he reminds us that we are not perfect and that there are so many things out of our control that we really cannot make promises; that does not mean we cannot hope or plan. Promises are expected to be kept and fulfilled; but, in reality, events may not work out as originally planned. In this sense, the sense of imperfect, promises truly cannot be made since the future is uncertain and broken promises cause stirred emotions and disappointment.
But, are there certain things we can promise? What other thoughts do you have?
