Moments of peace, tranquillity and joy from the Pacific Spirit Park last week to ease our troubled souls. Every day brings news of unimaginable horror, from young children and protesters murdered by troops in Myanmar, school children bombed in their schools in Syria, boys as young as nine beheaded in Mozambique, mass murder in Atlanta, Georgia and Boulder, Colorado; and now here at home terror in a library in North Vancouver with one person killed and six injured.
Today our thoughts are with the families of all those affected and with the community of Lynn Valley, especially the children who witnessed it all on what should have been a happy Saturday afternoon in their local library, and wishing those who have been injured a full recovery. 🇨🇦
If Trees Could Speak
Thank you to Sara, Lani, Meghan and Lori from Metro Vancouver Regional Parks for creating such a memorable walk in the woods today. Their words, together with those of Nakita Gill, honoring the magnificent trees of our glorious Pacific Spirit Park are truly inspiring and uplifting.
They have also created a Raccoon Ramble for children for the next two weekends. How lucky we are to have their wonderful spirits in our midst. Our heartfelt thanks to them all.
And of course our thoughts today have been with all those grieving their loved ones murdered in Atlanta. The peace and tranquillity we are fortunate enough to enjoy here are a poignant counterpoint to all those suffering racial hatred and violence everywhere. Enough. We are better thank this.
