We Must Always Remember

Pink RoseI can't believe it has been twenty years since the shooting of 14 young women at the Ecole Polytechnique. I wish I could feel that things were better; I'm not sure they are. We must continue to be vigilant and mindful while there is still violence of any kind directed at any targetted group, whether it be women, Jews, Arabs, Christians, queers, or anyone, and while there is still fear and suspicion of an "other." That unspeakable crime twenty years ago grew, in some part, from someone feeling that his entitlement had been usurped, that power had been taken from him and given to others whom he believed had no business in "his" place. Until we recognize that no human being has any more right to power, choice, success, or simply life, than any other, we cannot hope that such a crime will not happen again.
