Book Review by Linda Hill
When I was growing up in the 1950’s, my parents and grandparents taught me that it was important to remember WW1 and WW2 on Nov 11 so that we would never fight again. Much as I loved learning from my elders, I became quite skeptical about Remembrance Day during the Cuban Missile Crisis in the 1960’s. Remembering past wars has never seemed to me to be an effective way of stopping them.
“Are We Done Fighting Yet?” by Matthew Legge prods us to shift from remembering and pondering war, hate and division and take action to develop the courage and the skills involved in loving life.
Matthew is on a book tour through the West Coast of Canada from November 10 to 24, 2019. Scroll down to the end of the article for the dates, times and places he will be visiting. Continue reading

Take a moment to imagine cycling, walking, driving, or taking a bus through your neighbourhood one morning. Perhaps you are on your way to school, work, or a meeting. Maybe you are going shopping, doing errands, or on your way to to meet a friend at a park or recreation centre. Now imagine that, along the way and even after you arrive at your destination, everything is the same as it has always been except for one thing. That one change is this… Continue reading
