“To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power. Or the climbing, falling colors of a rainbow.” —Maya Angelou
We are each capable of a love so powerful it mirrors the forces of nature. Let’s channel a great love.
Close your eyes for a moment. Imagine a beautiful spring morning. The birds are singing. The flowers are starting to bloom. You hear the children’s laughter.
We are renewed with hope.
Our youth are our springtime, our hope for tomorrow. They are innocent, joyful; filled with life and wonder.
Now imagine a world where you wake up wondering if yet another child has attempted suicide. A world where those that bring us hope have lost all theirs? To me this would be hell on earth.
For the Pimicikamak community, this is their daily life.
So my friend and hero, Catherine Landry is a hurricane in its perfect power.
Catherine asked,”How can we help?”
The answer was simple:
- More people help on the front line
- beads, knitting, weaving crafts, sports equipment
- guest speakers who can empower/inspire both the youth and the community
- a connection/links to new people and communities beyond Pimicikamak borders
On Monday April 4th, we will be coming together as a community to join Catherine in her hurricane of perfect love for the children of Pimicikamak. We will be bringing beads, knitting and weaving supplies. We will be bringing sporting equipment. We will be making cards and notes to become pen pals to create a connection with the beautiful community of Pimicikamak.
Yours in #MOTHERLOVE,
