My Reconciliation Includes... Understanding, Sharing, and Ceremony

When I heard Marie Wilson, one of the TRC Commissioners, state with a straight face: "Reconciliation isn't a flavour of the month", I realized the importance of her statement. Reconciliation is complex, demanding and it is not something that you can simply like or share on social media and feel like you did your part. Reconciliation and healing has to come from the hearts, hands and minds of the people from the bottom up.
