Liberation Parade

Overseas Events

I’m excited just like a kid being here. I really am. I just, for the last week at home. Oh, I hope I can, I hope I can make it, you know, and the excitement kept building and here I am. The children, oh they just look and wave. Then you start handing out Canadian flags. They, they’re just so thankful just, last little girl that we gave a flag to, she couldn’t speak English, but she asked her mother how to say thank you. So she turned around, “Thank you”.All the Veterans are so blij. What is blij? Happy.It’s really important for all of us because it’s our history and it defines who we are. Before I kind of knew, I didn’t really have a full idea of it. Now I understand that it’s so important to people and if without Canada this, it wouldn’t be like this. The world wouldn’t be the same as it is today.Thank you for your support and I appreciate it. I think the rest of the world, also. So thank you very much. Canada wordmark
