Parent groups who are investigating living on my own

A brilliant film that peels the hidden and grotesque truth of how our 'dominant' culture attempted genocide on Aboriginal Canadians - and failed.  Two survivor stories are told with grace and clarity.  A must watch.

A rose

A rose 

A red red rose 

So soft

A red red rose

So bright that shines like a star

Make a wish.

A red red rose so gentle from the heart.

A red red rose 

That darkens

An warms the heart so gentle 

A red red rose

A beauty of a rose

Oh so sweet of my heart
