I wish to share that I DO love this country I live in, called Canada.
It welcomed my family & I back in 1967 with open arms.
I do not want to appear ungrateful…and yet I know too much now that I cannot “unknow”.
So today, I am choosing to use this FAB FRIDAY/Blog platform to share my thoughts & feelings.

I invite you to consider what it is that YOU can do to serve & support these 94 ‘Calls To Action’ to bring Truth & Reconciliation to the harm done to our Indigenous brothers & sisters over hundreds of years.
I personally donated to the Indian Residential School Survivors Society:
I also follow and have learned a lot from this IG account @onecanadaproject, and I recommend you follow them too, to become more informed.
When we know better, we do better.
I will not be donning the ‘red & white’ this year.
I will be wearing black (orange is another option…I just don’t own orange clothing) today.
Please consider joining me…in solidarity.
