Proud to be Canadian

This past weekend we celebrated Canada Day. No matter how we celebrate, it’s always a fun time and signifies a start to summer vacations.

However, shouldn’t it be more? It’s not just about partying and fireworks. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s fun, but it also should be about celebrating our great nation and how we come together as provinces, cities, and communities in times of need.

These fires were tragic. So many lost their homes. They lost everything. EVERYTHING. But our country picked up the pieces for them and helped out.

I don’t know about you, but that’s what celebrating Canada Day is all about.

I’m so proud to be Canadian!

How about you?

    Thanks for sharing, my friend. I, too, love our land … and hope to visit more of it one of these days.
