In 1992, I wrote an article for our family’s newsletter about my two grandmothers, neither of whom was originally from Canada. As I reread the thoughts now that they shared with me, their pride in their new country rings strong, but I’m most struck by how relevant the differences in their viewpoints about whether to hold onto or let go of their heritage are to me today….


Thanks to my Dad who asked me to write an article on Canada Day for his blog. You can check out the rest of my thoughts by following the link: Canada A New Homeland.
