“Reconciliation makes me think of residential schools and what happened in the past. I want that to change and to make it better because it makes me feel sad that a bunch of kids like me were hurt. I know that some people are still angry at others and some people are happy with others and I think that reconciliation is important because it brings people together. It makes me feel happy that people are trying to change the world and make it better.”
The Why We Walk campaign asks individuals to share their story and personal connection to the reconciliation movement. Stories will be shared in the weeks leading up to the Walk for Reconciliation on September 24th, 2017.
We believe that every person has a story to tell and that by sharing these stories, people may feel a more personal connection to the reconciliation movement.
