Stories of Kindness from Around the World

A Special Day in Canada


--by brad2, posted Jul 11, 2021
Good afternoon everyone, today is Canada Day here, but this year it has a more somber tone, with millions of Canadians showing support for their indigenous peoples by wearing orange and marching beside us.

As a survivor of the residential school system, this is very heartwarming to see. A photo of downtown Toronto, there are many marches going on right now everywhere in Canada with the crowds chanting "every child matters" for all the children who never made it home from the residential schools.

Yet, as I write this, I want to express my deep gratitude to those who helped the children who did make it through and to those who have made change for the better possible. Thank you!

We in the UK have some of the worst counts of all and we have to do our bit to reduce it……..horrifying stories re schools when will we all unite and love and accept one another. X
