I’ve had mixed ideas about a post for today. After yesterday’s events in our nation’s capital we were reminded, once again, how fragile life truly is and how, in a moment, we can be no more and leave behind those who loved us and even a country who mourns us.
There are things I want to say, none of which would be of much interest to anyone but myself or perhaps a few fellow Canadians.
Mostly I want us to:
keep our hearts open to all people, whatever their colour or creed, their religion, their sexual orientation, their manner of dress, their language or country of origin. There is enough hatred, enough aggression, enough ignorance in our world, let’s please not add to it.
And could we please, each one, today or tomorrow, smile at someone who is different? Just that.
We CAN nurture this world, this heartbroken, scared, sad world of ours. We CAN.
