Something to consider today is that many Indigenous people are still struggling with the discovery of the bodies of the 215 children at the former Kamloops Indian Residential School.

That discovery has led to many people being triggered. Their anger and frustration and memories have been brought right to the surface.

Coupled with the heat, in lots of cases tempers are shorter than usual.

Try to be caring and loving and try to be understanding. it is really difficult for many people right now.

Try hard today to be a better person than you were yesterday.
