Yesterday, upon my arrival to the home front, I thought, “I have to be strong and not lay down. I must decorate for Canada Day.” I’ve got flags, banner, flowers and a few other things to jazz the place up, now it’s just a matter of getting it prepped for the weekend.
I even bought a case of Canadian beer – the 18 or 24 pack – it came with an I AM CANADIAN flag! It is currently hanging on the balcony with the Canada Sock!
Loyal to our flag, identify with the flag and stand up for the country I was born to. When the anthem is played, stand and consider a country that offers a wonderful life.
Whether you are relaxing in your back yard, attending the community party, heading to the fireworks or Roughrider game, take a look around you and embrace how fantastic it is to know your neighbours. We many not always agree on our past, but the time is now to build toward a future.
Take our web poll; What do you identify with when you hear CANADA .. is it poutine, hockey, the flag or something different.
