Kind words from folks in Canada....

Just found this tweet, kinda broke my heart and soothed it at the same time....

To the United States of America. I know you are going through a lot right now. Thinking other Countries are watching you and laughing. Right now, we are not. Right now we are worried, sad, and scared for you. Right now, we are thinking, how can such a great country be going 1/



through this. Your Government failed you, Politics failed you, money failed you but we will not fail you! We will stand with you and support you and carry you as far as you need. We are your friends we are your cousins, we are here for you. Your voice is our voice your fear is 2/



our fear. Canada and the US have been beside each other for everything. This is no different You are fighting a war, a war within your own country, in your home land We have seen other countries around the world do the same. We were there for them, and now we are here for you. 3/


I know people are feeling hopeless, that the cloud of doom surrounds them. But, I am here to say, you are not alone in this fight. This will get better because Americans are strong, and Americans are brave! Americans are not alone. We stand with you.

This all seems so unreal and its really nice to see a glimmer of the hopefulness and compassion that used to be a lot more common.

19. Huge hattip to Canada



Hope we all remember this kind and generous outreach when the skies clear and the chaos is behind us. Because yes, we are friends and cousins. And that counts for far more than we think.

25. A beautiful anthem, much more stirring than the US anthem in my opinion. Have you ever heard....

....Roget Doucet sing it before a Montreal Canadiens hockey game? Gives one goose bumps.

BTW, they changed the lyrics fronm "in all thy sons command" to "in all of us command" in 2018 to make it gender neutral.
