Thinking of Gordon Downie today, as many of us will be in Canada. We all have a song we may have loved, or all of his albums, for that matter. The spirit of Gordon Downie was a creative and strong one. He had a kindness that came across in his music and in his messages and ways. He showed us that Canada needs help in the relationship with Indigenous people. He was being conscious of his country. This is what it means, “being aware of your roots, and making peace with this- he did this in fiery ways, a greater sense of justice”, Eli Glasner.
