I've written here when I was bereaved, lost, bored, amused, angry and probably with every emotion I could possibly draw on. Today, I know how I feel, but I don't know how to describe what I feel.
I can't get the picture of Aylan Kurdi out of my head, I can't stop thinking about what the Kurdi family is going through, I can't stop feeling ashamed of myself for "supporting" the idea of a kinder immigration policy in Canada but not actually doing anything.
I often have black days for which there is only a neurological or emotional reason, but this black day is one I have to make up for. I don't know exactly what I'll do but I will take action, even if it's only providing money to the group best suited to making a difference. But really, that's not enough.
If you're aware of something local (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) that I can become an active part of, please let me know.
