Gratitude, Pride, Canada.

on June 27, 2014


Today I am grateful.

That I live in a country and a neighbourhood where my family and I can walk in freedom, without fear of persecution for being who we are.  This weekend is a huge one here in Toronto.  WorldPride events everywhere.  As a family, my wife, son and I will head downtown to participate in Pride, but really, where we live we are able to celebrate it everyday. 

It is also Canada Day on Tuesday, so for me, this weekend is a double dose of greatness.  Thank you Canada, land that I love for so many reasons.  This weekend, I love you because you celebrate diversity so well.  Are there things about Canada that need to be changed?  Absolutely.  But I’m not going to get in to that today or this weekend, because today I just love you.  And thank you, my neighbourhood of Port Credit.  For being the warm, caring and inclusive community that my family is honoured to call home.  I know how fortunate we are.
