Honk to End Violence

This morning approximately 120 Calgary Girl Guides lined Memorial Drive to mark Canada's National Day of Action and Remembrance on Violence Against Women. It was wonderfully inspiring to see children holding a "Honk to End Vioence" banner and whooping with excitement when vehicles responded with their horns. It is so important to have young girls learn about protesting and experience the power of raising our voices against somethig we feel strongly about. It is necessary to build confidence in our thoughts and convictions through dialogue and positive reaction. Kudos to the organizers of this event and to the little sparks, brownies and guides who gave a positive message to the community this morning.
