Lots of Maple Leaves popped up today around here.

The ones I pity are the ones who never stick out their neck for something they believe, never know the taste of moral struggle, and never have the thrill of victory. - Jonathan Kozol

They were giving helicopter rides as part of the festivities here and it was a beautiful day.

Aww, I missed out on the festivities today... I was hoping to go watch fireworks tonight, but never got the chance. Stampede is coming up soon though! Fireworks every night.

there were fireworks and a parade last night but i couldn't go, had to wait for my boyfriend's brother from out of town and he missed his train so i had to sit by the phone all night waiting to figure out what was happening.

i saw a few from my kitchen window though, they were mostly hidden by trees but the really high up ones i could see. plus neighbours were setting them off in their yards like ALL night, one was right next door i think cause it was so frickin loud. luckily they didn't go on too late at night cause i have to work this morning. a lot of people had to work yesterday but have today off, so there was lots of partying last night since they can sleep in today.

I'm singin' here to get rid of fear
Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way
