The biggest celebrations are reserved for today. While I’ll probably spend a low-key Canada Day, I know I’ll reflect on how fortunate I feel to be part of this country. And I’ll say a very grateful thank you to my great-grandparents for having the courage to bring us here. I’m sure it must have been a wrenching decision to leave everything they knew to come to an unknown country. But like most immigrants, they worked hard and made a good life here. And their descendants, namely me and my brother and our cousins and all our children, definitely reaped the rewards of their bold move.

P.S. Happy 4th of July this coming Tuesday to my American friends. Have a wonderful day!
