Do or do not, there’s no middle ground to wisdom.

Reparius et Reconciliation Est
I am residing on the unceded and traditional territories of the Ts'msyen Nation, especially the Kitselas Nation and the Kitsumkalum Nation on the Skeena River adjacent to the City of Terrace and the Municipality of Thornhill, British Columbia, Canada.
You will soon be able to Click Here to read my post "On Reparation and Reconciliation" which I have been working on for close to a year already.
"It is only in the stumbling, and falling, and terror of finding a new path that we can show what reconciliation looks like. Canadians are ready for this wilderness. It is only in the listening, seeing, smelling, tasting, and touching of Canada's First Nations, Indigenous, & Metis stories that we will gain the wisdom to prevent the same mistakes."
I cannot deny the beauty of my Catholic upbringing and when I experience new stories, myths, and beliefs, it is my natural inclination to turn toward it until I understand.
Reconciliation for white people like myself, is giving our time now to understand, to hear and listen; to ask questions of those who have the answers, and to take up-shoulder-to-shoulder-the Human Rights issues of our times: Reconciliation, Restitution, Diversity, and Gender Equity.
