May gardens be wild, like jungles,
May nature never be tamed,
May dangers create of us heroes
May fears always have names
May the mountains stand to remind us
Of what it means to be young,
May we be outlived by our daughters,
May we be outlived by our sons.
by John Marsden
Tomorrow is Canada Day and in my country we will be celeberating 150 years. Canada is a young country with a history older than 150 years....short memories, high hopes.
