I was driving to work this morning listening to CBC radio when I heard the story of this woman from Montreal. She is a survivor from Holocaust, 97 years old. She donated her jacket to the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Center. It was a jacket that she was forced to wear while she was in a camp. In her interview she said something really nice. She said whenever I was upset from everyday matter of life I looked at this jacket and I felt better.
I think all of us need to have a jacket, something to remind ourselves not to be upset for every silly thing in life.

a tangible reminder,
only helps when the lesson is learned eh?
I have my Grandfathers hat from the holocaust, and I still see people being cruel to each other.
