Feeling right at home
Having had a look around, I was very happy to see such a collection of active indivuduals trying to make the community and country, better. I grew up with an activist father (and mother), and while I was very socially and politically active while studying at university two decades ago. Like too many I largely receeded to persuing my career, raising a family and doing a little volunteer work.
This inaction is changing, to rise to the occassion. I will be at the anti-prorogue protest on Jan. 23. My renewed concern for democracy, civil and human rights has been motivated by a horrific experience in 2005 in Canada involving 'terrorist profiling' and torture. I hope this is a forum where I can share my story.
