Today, September 30th is Orange Shirt Day. This day was established to honor those who survived Indian residential schools and remember those who did not. In recognition of the harm the residential school system did to children's sense of self-esteem and well being, and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters I wore an orange shirt today. My heart breaks thinking of all those helpless, precious children taken away from their home and thinking of the heartache their mother suffered having a part of themselves ripped off. Prayers of healing and peace for these families.
