Driven to Distraction
Updated: Oct 14
The most beautiful thing in the world is a heart that is changing.

Hearing the mournful, horrifying news about the 215 bodies of Indigenous children discovered on the grounds of a former residential school in Kamloops, BC, finds me driven to distraction with anger and grief.
And that is as it should be. The murder, neglect, and abuse of children is not to be tolerated. Institutional violence against the most vulnerable members of our human community is stunningly egregious.
Grieve the loss, acknowledge the cruelty, commiserate with our Indigenous communities, remember all the children who have been neglected, abused and murdered. It is the very least we can do to honour the lives and the deaths.
Today's editorial from the Globe and Mail about says it all.
