When We Forget


“It’s all fine to say, “Time will heal everything, this too shall pass away. People will forget” — and things like that when you are not involved, but when you are there is no passage of time, people do not forget and you are in the middle of something that does not change.”

            ~ John Steinbeck


“Failure comes only when we forget our ideals and objectives and principles.”

            ~ Jawaharlal Nehru


“We forget all too soon the things we thought we could never forget.”

            ~ Joan Didion


“Whenever we give up, leave behind, and forget too much, there is always the danger that the things we have neglected will return with added force.”

            ~ Carl Jung


Does it seem easy to forget that there are other important things going on around us as we continue to be locked to a pandemic?  When we forget we put aside the suffering of others and their path to justice.  When we remember we are compassionate, understanding, feeling, tolerant and motivated to be part of a solution.  Remembering the journey of others connects us and helps to build resolution.

Today, across Canada, we remember missing and murdered indigenous women and children.  Beyond a virus and a vaccine there are important things to not forget!


“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.”
