Shed a few tears today watching #longtimecoming this evening... 🇨🇦 his last project is already making an impact! I realized while watching the program when my Son said “ hey , is that the guy that wrote the song about the boy that ran away from Residential school ?” I said “ ya !! Are you learning about it in school ?” And he replied “ yes , we are watching the videos and learning about Charlie Wenjack “ We will do better Gord !
I'm sure many of you watched the Tribute to Gord Downie tonight. As I watched I was struck by something. He knew. He really looked at people, he listened to them, he saw things differently. He loved with abandon. I had that once when I was in sort of the same place. Watching him tonight reminded me. It shouldn't take that fear to feel that for life, for the ones we love. Thanks Gord for the reminder. I had lost the feeling of life being so fragile. I looked up to the Gord above and said hey man thanks. #gorddownie#love#longtimecoming
