Visited Providence House also today. Learned that 150 years ago representatives from the Maritime Colonies met together to consider creating a confederation of provinces called Canada right here in Charlottetown at Province House. When the leaders from Ontario and Quebec heard about the conference they showed up too. This experience led to the formation of Canada some 3 years late. (It was actually the threat of USA that helped them to consider such a union. There was a threat of how powerful we were as a country. But it was during the Civil War and there was the threat that Canada cannot allow themselves to have such a week central government that the USA has or something like that might happen to them).
It always helpful to get another perspective on our country. We are so narcissistic as a rule that it's hard to think about how others experience us! Maybe that's not just about our country, maybe that's true about you and I. We are so preoccupied with ourselves that we can't easily see how our behavior impacts others. Without that empathy true communication and true community does not happen.
Be sure to see the film, "A Great Dream."
