Hi karenVsandon here again.
Today a great friend has finally found out where her family are from and what country she belongs to. It’s wonderful, and I’m so happy for her! Yay!
I acknowledge elders, past and present, as custodians and owners of this land and it’s riches. I pay my respects to current elders, our indigenous brothers and sisters, and offer my apology for the invasion, the related atrocities, and the injustices of the past and present begun by bad decisions made by colonialist powerbrokers.
