Canada

Canadian flagWith so much being said about the Olympics these days, I will refrain from adding to the pile.  There are many wonderful stories coming out of the Games that are being written about elsewhere by much better writers than me.  However, I do want to mention something about the country we live in.  This week I met with a prospective family who were looking at our Early Learning Program.  They had moved to Canada six months ago.

We had a pleasant conversation about KCS and education.  As we were nearing the end of our discussion I asked them why they moved to Canada.  Usually I hear stories about job relocation, moving to be with other members of a family, etc.  Their response was wholly different and I haven’t been able to get it off my mind since they said it to me.  To paraphrase, they said they moved to Canada because they wanted to live in a safe environment for their daughter; one in which they could take her to a park and not worry.  I look forward to this family joining the KCS community next year and being reminded by them of what we are so fortunate to have in our country.
