In Remembrance of 9/11

The world will never forget…



A little bit about moi: I am a mom, a nana, a sister, a woman, a friend, a human being…a youth counsellor, Family Life Educator. I have been working in the helping profession for over 25 years and volunteered in various capacities from youths to seniors. Tournesol is my nom de plume for haiku and other Japanese form poetry here at Tournesoldansunjardin I hope you enjoy reading through my daily waka. I also have another blog "Stop the Stigma" where I may stand on my soapbox now and then and hope it will become a place to drop in and share or comment on issues important to you. In that vein this could be a great way to learn from each other. Namaste!

    1. I know it seems so minor compared to this great tragedy, but that morning my 13 year old Schnauzer died in my arms alongside my 20 yr old daughter. I was counselling at the youth line and for the next few months we were are all pushed beyond our comfort levels in the counselling centre with so much worry, so many more youths and young adults calling. I would put my grief on hold for my ride home and at home. That marked the day I stopped buying newspapers so I could “keep it together” to do my job and stay positive.
