A little coincidence?

Last weekend Drew & I went on a road trip to visit our family in Ottawa. And the distance from Drew’s office to our final destination? 444 km.

A little reminder to you…and to me.

“No matter what beliefs we each hold about who created our universe or how, we cannot deny that he or she or it is a fantastic designer. Sometimes it feels like we are setting out to destroy this great design, forgetting that we are all an essential part of it.”-Halim Choueiry

“Inspiration can often come from the most unexpected places.”-Zac Ebrahim

In memory of all who lost their lives on September 11th and in honour of all the countless men and women who became heroes that day…may we #neverforget

Where there is hatred, let me sow LOVE

September 11 was literally a 9-1-1 call to humanity-an outcry for help; a need for healing; a hunger for hope.
On this day, as we remember a moment in time in history, may we move forward and #liveoutloudeveryday to the wisdom of St. Francis Assisi who wrote: “where there is hatred, let me sow love.” In our world that has been scarred by violence, hatred, cruelty, and the greatest disease of indifference, may you and I be people who C.A.R.E. (Compassion Always Respects Everyone). Friends, when we change the way we love, we change the way we live and when we change the way we live, we change the way we love.
