This Friday, September 30 is Orange shirt day.  This day is “an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come”.

“Wear your orange shirt in recognition of the families impacted by residential schools and survivors of residential schools.  In the spirit of healing and reconciliation.”

Orange is NOT one of my go-to colours, but I felt it was important to recognize this colour and this day coming up.   So I began to hunt for orange around the house.  This is from my 10 year old’s dragon quilt.

And some silly things from around the house.

How great that a colour can represent such a positive movement.  So wear your orange on Friday.
