This isn’t a very bookish related post, and it will be rather short.
July 1, 2020 is the 153rd anniversary of Canada’s founding as a country.
For some this is good news, for others it is a sign of pain and suffering that has been lasting generations.
I am not an expert on the subject by any means, and quite a few people would have choice words with what I’m about to say I’m sure, but I am proud to be Canadian.
No person, family, city, state, or country, there will always be things that can be improved on. I recognize that Canada has made many mistakes in the past, and I am sure we will make many more.
At the end of the day, it is a nation that has brought hope and happiness to hundreds of thousands of people across the world.
It might not be a perfect nation, it owes a lot to the Indigenous peoples that were here before, but it does do good in the world.
Every day I work to become a better, more understanding, more knowledgable individual. It doesn’t happen overnight, but if everyone tries to see the world in a different way, we can all create a better society.
