The Truth and Reconciliation Hearings are coming to Edmonton at the end of March.
They are a response to the horrors of the Canadian Residential School System that brutalized the children that were forced into them.
The survivors are invited to speak at the Truth and Reconciliation hearings, and each one will be given a prayer/healing shawl as a symbol of being heard and cared for.
The call went out, asking for 500 prayer shawls from the crafting folk of Edmonton and area.
I’ve knitted 3 shawls, with love and with hope for healing…. may they bring peace and be a visible reminder that even though the person who receives each one will never meet me, that I do care about what happened to them.
I wish them peace and healing, and all the best, in all ways…. always…..
