Will you be doing anything specific related to the spirit and purpose of the day?
Will you still have to work?
Are you personally touched by this in any way?
During the 60s, I was in a Group home where 4 First Nations children lived. Did not know they were till many years later. They probably did not feel it so, but I guess they were the lucky ones that did not end up at residential school. Wish I had learned of their background at the time.
First time I really became aware of these issues existing during my lifetime was watching North of 60. Just a hint of the reality that I grew up oblivious to.
This day matters to me and I expect that a number of times during the day, I will pause and reflect and acknowledge the wrong that was done. I do this often anyhow, but moreso this day.
