Happy Canada Day!

“Canadian Sunset” by Lone Primate on Flickr

I was going to post about the great things Canada does. Our healthcare, our human rights, our diversity. But even if you’ve never been here, you already know all that.

What you may not know is how Canada feels. How wonderful it is that nature is everywhere. How it feels to go anywhere in the world and be welcomed, just for being Canadian. How fortunate we are, as a nation, and how strong our country is.

Canadians are patriotic, but ours is a quiet patriotism. It’s not so much seen in bumper stickers and vocalizations; it’s more the calm contentment of knowing that ours is a wonderful country and that we are lucky to live here. I’m proud to be Canadian.

Happy Canada Day, everyone.
