Today Canadians share a day of mourning for the victims of the attacks on the US. Today my candles will burn and my tears will fall.
``We join all civilized nations in pledging our complete support in the days to come and our full co-operation in bringing those who have committed this awful crime to justice,''
I have been corresponding with relatives and loved ones in both Canada and the US since Tuesday and have ascertained that they have not been directly affected. Our lives have been changed by the events on Tuesday and I hope that we will remain connected and strong in the days to come.
I feel there is something I can do. I plan to be tolerant, gentle, and kind to those around me, yet vigilant and aware that actions speak louder than words. I plan to listen carefully to what our leaders are saying and to avoid engaging in or listening to fruitless analysis based on limited information. In my case, such analysis heightens emotion, obscures the heart, and reduces the ability to act. I will remain ready to act and pray that it will not be necessary to do so...
