Quote of the Week

The All Candidates Meeting was held in the Esquimalt High School Theatre. Before the meeting, a friend and heritage advocate pointed out a quote in the display case. I found it meaningful and went back to the school yesterday to write it down so I could post it here.

"Traditions are voices from our ancestors telling us to respect old ways. they are important in making us feel good about ourselves. Innovation is the new way. It calls us to the future. It tells us to walk new paths, to explore new things, and to experience ways that are different. But we cannot do this with comfort if we do not know and respect the things that have come before us. It's the brave person who walks in new directions" - Maukskumben
