It has been a challenging week here with a mass shooting in Toronto. It's always a jarring and terrible thing to hear when something like this happens somewhere in the world, but when it's 2 blocks from where your daughter lives, it's a whole other experience all together. No one wants to see this site in their neighbourhood.

I will be going to the makeshift memorial site after work today to say prayers, pay my respects, and try to help my daughter feel safer in her neighbourhood. I will take my hand stitching and sit at a cafe on this street to support the local businesses and maybe in one tiny way help to restore a sense of peace.
