A little Politics - A little Olympics - A LOT of heart..................
I don't discuss politics on my blog - maybe a little snippet here and there - but I try to stay away from it completely - it's a depressing subject - especially if you live in Montreal - or Quebec to be more precise.
We are a French speaking majority in a province in Canada ...............with a lot of conflict politically.
In 2012 a Separatist party was voted into power ( as a minority government - but with enough clout to do serious damage to our beautiful city and province )
I'm not going to go into all of the details here - there's too many - but there's talk in the air of another election and of another vote in favor of separating from Canada - a thought that breaks my heart more than I can tell you. They tried 2 previous times and lost - but each time the subject comes up there's another exodus out of this province taking much needed and very valuable tax dollars with them when they go.
It's a vicious circle - which we tend to all run around in - instead of moving forward like the rest of the country.
I'm tired of it - exhausted from it - with so much going on in the world - with so many doors opening up - I'm tired of dealing with doors constantly being closed.
So when I saw this video - I actually wept.
I cried because political strife can leave you an emotional wreck but I also wept because these 3 beautiful girls restored something deep inside me.
Please take a moment to watch - they are French Canadians - and they are PROUD to be a part of this magnificent country and to be representing Team Canada.
You have no idea, girls, how proud we are of you.
Bonne Chance Maxime - Chloe et Justine - vous etes gagnants dans mon coeur
Much love, - beaucoup d'amour
( where's the damn kleenex ? )
UPDATE - OMG - I WROTE THIS UP BEFORE YESTERDAY'S RESULTS -
INCROYABLE!!!!! ( INCREDIBLE )
