Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 17th day of June, 2015

This morning I awake to rain…

Today as always, begins in a state of gratitude.

I begin each day writing as a physical reminder.

This morning part of my bus route is being detoured so I am catching the earlier bus.

This morning there is a Memorial March for a fallen Police Officer here in Edmonton.

Police Men and Women will come for all over to participate to show their appreciation and support.

I am grateful to the men and women who work to protect us all from harms way.

It does always make me think “but why?”

We should not have to place other human beings in harms way from each other.

You would think after how many thousands of years that we would have evolved to be more peaceful.

I am disappointed, but yet hopeful, that someday, perhaps not in my lifetime,it will happen.

So on this day I would like to say thank you to all those people out there who work to keep us safe.

I do appreciate your time away from your family, and to those who were taken from their families much too early you have my eternal gratitude.

Please take a few minutes today to show your support.

Our neighbourhood,and many others in our City have wrapped blue ribbons around trees and posts to show their support.

Special Hello today:  to all of our women and men in blue ….. you are the best.

Always, Carol and Alvin
