I realize that it's really December 4th but in Canada today is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. We wear white ribbons and we remember the lives of the 14 women who were killed 26 years ago in "The Montreal Massacre" on December 6th.
I attended a moving memorial service at the University of Waterloo this morning. Dr. Mary Wells gave an inspiring speech about discrimination and violence against women. It was encouraging to see the event so well attended by faculty and students in the engineering department, and by the general public.
After work today I will be retreating to the safety and solace of my sewing room to do some quilting. Quilters know that this is what keeps us stitched together!
I will be working on step #2 of the Quiltville mystery quilt.
