Reconciliation is an opportunity to demonstrate how we can move from the exploration of truth, to acceptance, to appreciation, to contribution, and to community, – an opportunity to demonstrate how we can create healthy, sustainable, and creative communities as a community.
Reconciliation is a road on our creative journey to community, – an opportunity for creative exploration, – an opportunity for exploring our heritage, exploring our cultural evolution, and exploring our creative possibilities, – an opportunity to learn how to create community. An opportunity to demonstrate how we can create community around our common interests as Canadians as a country and as a community
We can learn from our creative evolution. We can learn from indigenous peoples how to create sustainable communities. We have the knowledge and technology to learn how to live in harmony with our natural world. We have a common understanding and appreciation of the idea of fairness and equity
The art of reconciliation, the process of creating community, is Canada’s opportunity for creative leadership and the most highly leveraged contribution we can make to our common human interests from our creative resources as a creative community.
Demonstrating how we can create community with understanding, appreciation, and caring could be our greatest contribution to our country, to our world, and to our creative possibilities for the future.
