May good continue to triumph over evil.

May the lights continue to shine.

May ones inner light shine a little brighter each day.  

Happy Diwali to you and yours!

“Where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.”

February marks Black History Month and it is a time for all of us to reflect on and to learn from a painful and deplorable past. 

The many stories we’ve heard, not just of savagery and oppression, but of bravery and triumph must be told to ensure such a tragic and unjust past will never be repeated.

It is with certainty we cannot change the past, but we can all strive for a unified future – one of respect and dignity for all of humanity. 

 A Happy Chinese New Year to you!

MandelaBy: CJ Ramsaran
Today marks Mandela Day in honor of Nelson Mandela, former President of South Africa.
Mandela dedicated 67 years of his life –  a lifetime for many, in which he fought for and taught us to believe in the good of mankind and the well-being of humanity.
Mandela’s teachings invoke passion and compassion.  His mantra is simple: do good, be good, live good and inspire inward and outward change.  When we come together for the greater good of humanity, we demonstrate the world not only can be, but is a better place.
This Mandela Day take 67 minutes of your time to inspire and be inspired…

Many before us have paid the ultimate price and sacrifice by giving their lives in defense of, and in honour of this great country. 

Today, we also pay tribute to the men and women enrolled in the military and to those on current tours of duty –  they too have paid a price.   They selflessly give of themselves to defend our rights, our freedoms, and our honour.

Remembrance Day… Lest We Forget!

145 Years Strong…

Happy Canada Day 2012!

Happy Father’s Day

Cinco de Mayo is Spanish for the fifth of May. 

On this day in 1862 at the Battle of Pueblo, the Mexican Army against all odds, triumphed in victory over the French Army. 

The French were stronger and  more outfitted with some 6,500-8,000  soldiers in comparison to a smaller Mexican Army of 4,000 – 4,500.  Yet despite the odds, the Mexicans took a stronghold and overcame defeat.

Cinco de Mayo is observed nationally in the United States; with larger celebrations in States with a higher Mexican population/heritage.  It is also celebrated at a regional level in Mexico; primarily in the State of Puebla where the victory was won.  In Puebla, the holiday is more formally named El Dia de la Batalla de Puebla (English Translation: The Day of the Battle of Puebla).

On Cinco de Mayo, we stop not only to commemorate Mexico’s victory during the Battle of Puebla; we also stop to celebrate the vibrant culture and rich heritage of the Mexican people.
