As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace, and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect.
These thoughts remind me of the Biblical and Quranic texts, where there are verses that describe where the prophets used to climb high in the mountains, or go into caves (The Cave, Surah Kafh- 18:10) to seek refuge, peace, or be at a point of oneness with God. Sometimes they would go away for a while, and return when they felt ready to do so. In the same sense, present and future generations need a sheltered, protected space where they can explore who they are, learn, grow, develop, nurture the self and so on. So that when they are in the public domain they are able to speak up, defend and protect themselves.
Dedication: These thoughts are dedicated to the voices of youth, and to the Humboldt Broncos Hockey Community where lives were lost and injuries sustained. Thank you for the courage that you have shown to follow your dreams. United Through Sport. We send our love, prayer and condolences to the families, the Hockey and Humbolt Broncos community.
Our thoughts, to invite and inspire. With Love & kindness. :)
