September 30th 2021 is the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation in Canada. This day honours the children who were taken from their homes and families and sent to residential schools. Many of us are learning how to feel and communicate about this painful history. September 30th is an opportunity for us to honour the children who were lost and those who survived the trauma and abuse endured in residential schools. It is an opportunity to learn the truth about this shared history and to take the necessary steps toward reconciliation.
