I have just returned from the Remembrance Day ceremony at Cates Park in North Vancouver. My feelings are somewhat tumultuous this year, with everything that has been going on. It has been a hard week.
Today, I will mourn all those lost to war and conflict. Tomorrow, we will go out and we will all continue to work towards making sure it is "Never Again" in the only way I believe can work; by kindness and inclusion and acceptance, by tolerance and thoughtfulness and love, by protecting our home - terra - and promoting empathy and responsibility at a community and global level in all the children we work with.
Teachers carry the torch. We say "never again" on a daily basis. Thank you for all you do to help keep back the darkness and move us towards peace.
