I spent the past three days in #ThunderBay. It was a bit of a roller coaster, including moments which filled me with sadness and rage; and, moments of sheer awe and joy. As I head back to SWOnt, I wanted to share some thoughts.

THREAD. /1
On the flight here, I listening to the @CANADALAND series on Thunder Bay. It paints a horrifying picture of life in so-called “murder city” with the highest homicide & hate crime rate in Canada. The stories of racism and vicious murders of Indigenous people had me in tears. /2

Sitting in #ThunderBay #yqt airport reflecting on time I've spent here. People have shared heartening & devastating truths with me…
I saw the bounty of this land, offered prayer, & reflected on the beauty around me, how it's able to housing such hurt...
I just got out of a cab. The driver asked what I do, I tried to deflect (I'm not shy, but weeks on the road have left me tired)…
