It is so painful and difficult to learn and know what happened in the Residential Schools. It make it more painful knowing that all the terrible atrocities were done to children. Everything was taken away form them; their parents, their family, their customs, their home. How it is possible that people who preached God's Commandments, one says: "You will love your neighbour as yourself",  could have committed all this crime.  

I guess I wasn't the only one crying and feeling the pain. Just image families and indigenous people living with this their knowledge for more than 100 years and nobody was listing to them. Now is the time to uncover hidden truth. Hope it will happen soon.
