Today is National Truth and Reconciliation Day. Lots of orange shirts around. Many companies and organizations are closed to make this a day of reflection.

The day comes with many emotions, with many perspectives, and deep feelings. Not everyone is aligned in their feelings. It is unrealistic to believe we all will align.

We can choose to use the day to reflect and understand other’s points of view. Understand more about Canadian history. Perhaps it can be a day with less judgement and recognize we all share this great land we call Canada.

If you want to move past reflection, you might consider donating one day’s pay. The background on the initiative can be read here. Or you can visit their website.
