This past July I travelled back to Calgary to visit family and friends. I also had a great time celebrating Canada Day (July 1st)!!!!! I am proud to be a Canadian, I love Canada but in the past have never participated in Canada Day events.
This year I read about “The Living
It was …….. I overheard a lady speaking spanish and of course I had to meet her, since i am currently living in Mexico and speak a limited amount of “Spanglish”. She explained that she was visiting from Colombia but is now living in Spain and was so happy to be part of this event. I say so, she was dressed in full Canadian regalia and bless her enthusiasm!!!
As we assembled to create this flag I became overwhelmed with gratitude for everything I have and the feeling of being proud of Canada but also happy for the life I now have in Mexico. When everyone stood and sang “O Canada” tears ran down my face, tears of happiness and I was not the only one.
I had such a wonderful time watching people and snapping away with my camera. So here is how I captured the event.
Look at all the people !!!!!
This is my buddy Ela and me :), what a great time we had. If you are in a city who participates and you are feeling patriotic we highly suggest this event!
