For Toronto....Victims of Madness....Again

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 26 April 2018 in Plant & Nature.

This is dedicated to the victims, families, friends and all involved in the horrific Van Attack in Downtown Toronto on Monday 23 April, 2017.

More insanity - now it strikes my beloved Canada....again...
My prayer and tears are meant for you all - my beloved friends....

I apologize for the lateness of this post....

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire

Great tribute for something that is becoming scarily too common.

A compassionate offering of emotional support, and a sad recurrence of sheer wasteful insanity. Our Toronto Maple Leafs just lost to the mighty Boston Bruins, but there were wonderful signs held up by Bruins fans in the crowd : "Toronto Strong - Boston is with you" etcetera... THAT, is what it's all about.
