Today is Canada Day – our national holiday. Canada is officially 146 years old.

It’s time for fun, food and fireworks.

I am a very proud, patriotic Canadian and am grateful to have been born in this country. Many, many others are not so lucky and are stuck in some awful place where they have little or no control over their lives, especially the girls and women.

Today I give thanks for the privilege of an accident of birth.

Happy Birthday, Canada!
