Thursday Shares & Canada's Current Situation

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  

A few days ago, not far from here in Montreal, a soldier was run down and killed. Today another soldier was killed (shot) in Ottawa at Parliament.  Most of you are aware of the Ottawa incident, and here is a link about the one that happened here in Quebec, before the Ottawa attack. Canadian Soldier Dies in Quebec Attack  I wanted to ask you all for your thoughts and prayers for the victims' families and all of us here in Canada at this time.  Thank you so much.

I took these two photos a few years ago, in a beautiful park with a man made pond here in Montreal!  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.




The videos I have selected for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Exotic Birds - Great White Egret

For the following, I am providing the link sources beneath each photo.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.










Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share.

  2. I love your koi pictures. I'm so sad to hear what happened today in Ottawa. It seems no country is immune from terrorism, not even the wonderful, friendly Canadians.

  4. I heard about the shootings on the news today, it is getting a lot of press. How awful! I somehow think of Canada as having almost no violence. The fish pictures are great, are they Koi?

  11. Thanks for the link to the story about the Quebec soldier.
    Je pense a toi et tous mes amis canadiens dans ce temps. C'est incroyable ce qui c'est passé hier... je ne comprends pas la motivation de ces personnes. Ils n'attachent aucune valeur a la vie humaine.

  15. Deepest sympathies to the families of those killed just going about their daily duties and to the people of Canada. Your blog is very interesting and I love reading it, even if I don't always have time to put up a comment.

  17. We were watching this on our evening news last night, here in Minnesota. Yes, my thoughts and prayers are certainly sent your way. It is so very sad, and horrible at the same time. My son-in-law is in the Minnesota National Guard, and he's had two tours in Iraq, and I know first hand what suffering occurs withing the family units as well. God Bless them all.

    Those poor families.....and now freedoms will be curtailed even more because misguided people turn to violence.

  21. Dear Linda - my heart goes out to all of you and the families of the fallen soldiers. Will be remembering everyone in my prayers. Your quote on the war seems quite appropriate today. Thank you for caring and sharing. Hugs!

  22. In the midst of the tragedy in Canada, your posts of humorous videos and inspiring quotes is good medicine. Also, the chicken looks so good that I have copied this post to my email inbox. Maybe I'll try it!
    My thoughts and prayers are definitely with the people and country of Canada.

  24. Bonjour Linda,
    Oui, nous avons regardé hier aux Actualités les attentats à Ottawa et à Montréal.
    Cela me semble incroyable car le Canada semble un pays si tranquille. Tout change malheureusement.
    Bonne journée à toi. Bises de France

  25. Linda, both of the incidents you mentioned have been all over our news here in the U.S. I have been praying for not only for Canada but for the entire world because of the terrorism, chaos, diseases and uncertainty which is so prevalent.

    I enjoyed the videos and pictures!

  33. So sad that extremists are again rearing their ugly misguided heads. We as humans have a long way to go before we become civilized. Perhaps another twenty thousand years need to pass before man stops killing man.
    Love the fish Linda. Close to where I lived in England was Elsham Country Park where you could feed the Coy Carp. Have a look at this video link.

  36. It was such a tragic event, and sadly, I think it is only the beginning, as this warped group continue on their destructive path.

  37. Praying for the families of the soldiers killed. It just doesn't seem like the sort of thing that's supposed to happen in Canada.

    Good Secrets of the Sea quote!

  38. I heard about the young soldier being run down the other day and now this latest young man, both taken before their time, tragic, so sad. My prayers are with our Canadian friends, and especially with the families of those who lost their loved ones. A comforting post Linda, thank you.

  39. Hi Linda, the sad events here in Quebec and Ottawa are both so tragic. Our country is so peaceful and we all try to live better with each other. These events will make us more vigilant and caring with each other.
