Canadian Day For Truth And Reconciliation #Canada #TruthandReconciliation

September 30, 2021 marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.The day honours the lost children and Survivors of residential schools, their families and communities. Public commemoration of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools is a vital component of the reconciliation process.

I’m not Canadian but this time of truth and reconciliation are universal and every nation have their own issues with the treatment of indigenous people and the sadness of how they were oppressed and removed from their homes and land.

  1. Our daughter told our Grandson about the schools and he said that if he had been taken he would run away and come home. She explained that was not possible. He looked at her and said :”That’s not right. It’s just not right .” Thanks for posting about this day Tony.
