I received this greeting from an Afghan friend, who gave me permission to share. 

Happy Day of Canada!  24 hours of reminding each other about those who offered their deepest generosity, unconditional support, and the kindest hospitality to their offspring and loved ones of those who had to rescue their lives while Canadians layered their heartfelt genuine support unwaveringly to share their lands and resources so that everyone co-exists with love, peace, and care. This day is a good excuse to celebrate our togetherness and grow side by side under the healing power of both indigenous wisdom keepers, and the spiritual diversity of settlers.  

Ruler supreme, who hearest humble prayer, Hold our dominion within thy loving care; Help us to find, O God, in thee, A lasting, rich reward, As waiting for the Better Day, We ever stand on guard. Final verse from our original Canadian Anthem.  Originally posted Canada Day 2023

Thank you, each and every one of you, for supporting Refugee Friendship Month and our GiveCambodia campaign. Your contributions are not just financial, but also expressions of love and justice, making the world a better place. We couldn't do it without you!
