Today is the 154th anniversary of Canada becoming a country, rather than a collection of British colonies. Happy Canada Day to those who are celebrating.
I may set this post to “no comments.” I don’t want to launch into political debate here. I just wish to mark the day while I sort out my own complicated and conflicted feelings.
The Canada I believed in — the one I thought I was part of — does not exist. But I’m slowly realizing that it can.
With a lot of hard work, compassion, education, humility, and — most of all — listening, this can become the country I thought it was.
