W E E K E N D  M U S I N G S ::

To say that this past week was extraordinary would be an understatement. As many of you will know, Canada became the victim of not one, but two terrorist acts. Like many, am still processing the horrible events, which led to the deaths of Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent and Cpl. Nathan Cirillo. To their family and friends, my deepest, deepest condolences. Family was my primary concern on Wednesday when the gunman who killed Cpl. Cirillo made his way to Parliament Hill.  Luckily, my son-in-law, who is a House of Commons security officer and was on duty and immediately involved in the events that led to the gunman’s death, was unharmed.   It has been a long and emotional week, one we will not soon forget.  On that note, am so eternally grateful for all my blessings.  Hope your week ahead is a beautiful one.  Linda, xo
