Good evening, my weekend was good. I spend alot of time with my mom at the Walking Together, Sharing our Journey, A Commemoration Event honouring Residential School Survivors. There were many people from all over who came to share their stories of their experiences in the residential school system, the people/church who inflicted all the abuse on our ancestors apologized to those who were in attendance at the conference. I attended a ceremony at a former site in memory of the students who attended a residential school here in the city, I did not even know they had a school here. Three survivors who attended that school shared their heartbreaking stories with us..it was so emotional but I am so grateful I got this opportunity to go and listen to their stories. Throughout this weekend I kept thinking of my late father, how he, my mom and I went to walk the grounds of another former residential school grounds..walking the grounds I could feel a sadness..of despair..it was a real emotional weekend..something I will never forget..
