“Reach Out And Touch Somebody’s Hand …

Make This World A Better Place If You Can”

These were among the words sung by tens of thousands who gathered in Toronto this Sunday, April 29th near the closing of a vigil for those who perished in a brutal and senseless act of violence in the streets of that city earlier this April.

In the wake of the horrific attack that occurred in the heart of Toronto this past April 23rd, many have asked if Canadians are less safe. Should we live in more fear of something like that happening again?

We should remember that Canada is one of the safest countries to live in on the planet and that it will likely remain so despite what happened on that sunny Monday afternoon on Yonge Street.

There are those out there who prey on peoples’ fear to divide us and strip away our freedoms.

Don’t let that happen. Let love triumph over fear, and continue to show support for those who lost loved ones and for those suffering from the trauma of witnessing the carnage that day.

Make this world a better place if you can.
