At the end of the book The Christmas Carol, Dickins wrote a line about about honouring Christmas every day of the year. When I was thinking today about Truth and Reconciliation Day, I think this is what we need to remember and commit to doing:
"Reconciliation is not the responsibility of Indigenous Peoples. It is the responsibility of all Canadians. It is our responsibility to continue to listen and to learn," Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. #NationalDayForTruthAndReconciliation https://t.co/3TqNqUj3NB— teleSUR English (@telesurenglish) October 1, 2022
I will honour Truth and Reconciliation in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me. I will not shut out the lessons that they teach.
#USask is lighting buildings and pathways in orange throughout the week to recognize the #NationalDayforTruthandReconciliation and to reflect on what truth and reconciliation means for our campus community. pic.twitter.com/8qaxrZxEWn— U of Saskatchewan (@usask) September 30, 2022
From last night's football game -
Shirley Isbister had trouble believing her eyes Friday as she stood at the bottom of Victoria Park in Saskatoon watching more than 1,000 people dressed in orange shirts pour in from the street above for National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. https://t.co/WDN02I9FWH— CTV Saskatoon (@ctvsaskatoon) September 30, 2022

"If we were talking in Cree, we would be laughing from the very first syllable. It’s a laughing language, it’s a joyful language — and my favourite activity in the world is to laugh," says #TomsonHighway.#NationalDayforTruthandReconciliationhttps://t.co/pjThy9pfVx— Broadview Magazine (@BroadviewMag) October 1, 2022

Strikes me as the perfect guard dog - anyone who breaks into the house would end up petting the big smoof until I came home to catch them. https://t.co/kulXlRP4DQ— Timothy Huyer (@tim4hire) September 28, 2022
