Sharing with you things that are on my mind...Maybe yours too. Come back to Wrights Lane for a visit anytime!

After putting a "30" to the First Nations treaty belt story below, I could not help but think about the earlier mistreatment of not only our native Indians in Canada but African-Americans, Japanese, Chinese and other foreign immigrant pioneers as well.  It was a sobering thought that reminded me of how far we have come in Canada in the past 100 years -- and how far we have yet to go.

The "man's inhumanity to man" that Robert Burns wrote about several hundred years ago, continues to be a cloud hanging over us, tempering the national pride of some who would have it otherwise...But not enough to sufficiantly right the wrongs of the past and present in this fair land of ours.
