O’Canada

Happy Canada Day, my friends! As my friend Mark wrote today, “To all Canadians, I wish you a Happy Canada Day. (To everyone else, I wish you were Canadian.)” And from Matt Good:

What is truly great about this country, if we are very careful, is what it has the potential to become. That is the real greatness of Canada and Canadians. All those who’ve come before us worked at building something largely unseen, as if painting an immense portrait in the dark. Hopefully, in the not so distant future, we’ll begin to bring that portrait into the light and ensure that every face of the nation is equally and truly represented. For only then will our picture be complete.
We have, over the last 138 years, earned an international reputation that quite often produces smiles and handshakes, not enemies. And I wouldn’t want it any other way.

Enjoy the day, give thanks for the spark of luck that gave us the chance to live in this land, and seek the courage to use the responsibility that fortune gives us to benefit the world.
