Followers of my Angels of the Road blog site are well aware of my
involvement in social justice issues, particularly as they relate to our Native brothers and sisters. This may seem like a very political discussion for a spiritualist website like this one and more suited to the other blog, but I want to share with you what I am seeing here. I see a new age … an end to ass-covering, finger-pointing and blame-setting. A time to look squarely at where we have been as a society…this is a sad and ragged piece of Canadian history which we all need to own. NO guilt, just awareness and a coming together in our grief to end the injustice which shamefully still exists. As I said in Silent No More, “regardless of when we were born or when we got off the boat, we are all responsible for what comes next”.
