She didn’t provoke you

Countless women are still victims of violence, sexual abuse and harassment. Every 6 days, a woman in Canada is killed by her intimate partner and for Indigenous women, women of colour, trans women, low-income women, disabled women, and non-binary people, that violence is even more common.

Tolerance is an attitude that makes people better.

Tolerance is the desire to understand other points of view and realities different from ours.

Breathe

Having a bad day? Feeling stressed? Concentrate on your breathing. Take some deep breaths, relax physically and mentally, and concentrate on feeling better.

Red Cloud

Today I wanted to talk about Red Cloud (not red clouds). Red Cloud was a great Sioux warrior and a leader of his people during the Red Clouds War. December 10th marks the anniversary of his death.
