Recent parade a celebration of hope and healing
I've never written a letter before, but felt compelled to comment on a recent event. What a wonderful experience we had on Saturday when the Sparks of Hope parade made its way through downtown Canby.
It was a celebration of young boys and girls who had been traumatized through sexual abuse, and the path they are on to healing and wellness. I was so happy to see so many people turn out to celebrate the bravery and strength of these children who have been through so much.
And while so many dressed up like their favorite superheroes, it's clear to those who attended that they needed no capes or masks to demonstrate that they are superheroes in their own unique way each and every day.
Blessings to those children and congratulations to Canby for supporting them in their journey.
