Multicultural You

Multicultural You

Hail Bravehearts

A brave new day, a brilliant country, a national holiday, a celebration of pride, joy and togetherness.  This great nation, molded and blended, nurtured and cherished.  A great Canada, a fabulous notion, a clever and brilliant place.  Multicultural you, with freedoms and rights.  The freedom to live without violence, to live in neighbourly contact with people of different nationalities, the right to live without arms and to protect yourselves, keeping your community safe and secure..

The laws protect our culture but still frees us from oppression.  No tyrants or dictators, to enslave us.  The contract with the people is peace among us, no cultural quarrels or religious disputes.  An age old negotiation that protected these rights, have been handed down and protected, for hundreds of years.  Multicultural Canada, with its birth in French and English culture, both completely different, yet somehow it works.  Hammer out the contract, write the laws, guarantee the freedom.  The evolving wisdom of ages past, becomes the fulfilling society of our present.  Strong and united, the worlds peoples share this land.  From ancient aboriginal ways to the escaping refugee, the weave of a mosaic of multicultural heritage enhances our lives, gives us richness in people and culture and ingrains an intelligence of peace among us.  United in freedom, mutual caring, the sharing of this country is our shining past, our fabulous present and our brilliant future.

We are unique in our history.  A land of harsh and somewhat unconquerable climate, of difficult terrain and a short growing season.  A majestic land of wild forests and tumbling rivers, of curious peoples and language barrier.  Still, the nation was won through negotiation and peace, love and marriage, barter and exchange.  The cultures blend, learn and accept, we are all different, we are all one.  Our wise past is still our present, still our future, still our bright and shining star.  That star that guides us and beckons us to follow, into your unique and inspiring country.  Into your fellowship and merciful negotiation, into the nation of democratic law and democratic peace.

Hail, oh Canada, as the years roll by and the world changes, the battles die and the wars subside, into your dreams of international peace, where all peoples live under the shelter of laws of freedom.  Peaceful freedom, oh multicultural you.  Write your songs, sing your hearts out, brilliant praises to our national cause.

Oh Most Divine

Oh Most Divine

Hail all you brave ones.

 

Oh glory and honour to this majestic king.  We worship you, we praise you, oh blessed immortal being.  Salvation and glory to this oh risen Lord.  We hail thee and praise thee, with prayers and adoration, oh deity divine and humanity saved.

Blessed Lord of centuries past, generations of followers still believing, still pursuing, still curious and understanding, still searching and seeking, the devout persisting, what are these holy ways?  Powers immense, of magnificent proportions, intervention and instilling the knowledge of these mysterious ways.  Providence and grandeur, might and mightiness, still the stable, with the lowly, still the path of righteous living.  Oh greatest of Lords, oh highest of beings, oh teacher of wisdom, we praise thee, with song, with prayer, with labour, with love, with gold, with skills and with honour.  Teach us, oh wise one, teach us to be human.  Oh deity of the great divine, hold us mercifully in you hands.

So duty calls you, oh awesome human, come to the colony, do your duty, come to the colony and be praised.  The wondrous one, of heavens keeping, the glorious, will guide your way.  Come and be magnificent, join the grandeur, mighty and noble and courageous to this day.  Come and worship, come and be guided, oh you most daring, you fortunate, you awesome, you lucky ones, to be the fortitude of France and to seek your fortunes in this most auspicious place.

Lucky are we, to be the chosen ones, the one who will survive and sing glories to our King.  Praises!  Praises!  To overcome the shadows of hardship and poverty, to overcome the cruelty of harsh judgement and misunderstanding, to overcome the elements and live once more.  Hail to you, oh awesome almighty ones, to be first.  First in a game of daunting obstacles, first in a challenge of courage and fortitude, first in a roll of the dice as to who will survive.  Lucky you, to be the chosen ones, come to the colony, take up the dare.

A fort, a sweet road, Cap Diamond, a church, the Victorious,  government dwellings, low ground and high ground, lower echelons and higher dignitaries, merchants and sailors, government and leadership, all finally together in one place, the colony of New France.  Oh sweet Quebec, you finally survive, oh sweet Quebec, you finally exist.  A colony, one sweet place, a colony, for France.

Over a span of several decades, the colony grew.  From its roots in human sorrow, to a place of quaint ingenuity and charm.  Boldly go where no one has dared to go before, oh brave colonialists of bygone era.  The seat of the country lies in your hands.  Negotiate and trade, bargain and develop.  Oh brave new world of French imperialism, of French might and fortitude.  Oh brave new world.  The king of kings holds you dear and in his arms, his strength shall hold you.  Oh wondrous love, to live so greatly.  Power and praises to our king.

Go Get It

Go Get It

Good Day Brave hearts

Another glorious day. The new year rings in hope and joy for a prosperous and intelligent 2016. A year of energy and excitement, of harmony and ambiance, of friendship and compatibility, of love and kindness. The cheer of a new beginning and the focus of another adventure. Brave new world, brave new start, brave new beginnings. To set your lives on that course of success, your own personal quest, your own personal best. In the quiet of your brilliant mind, your direction comes to you. Follow your wisdom, oh brave ones, to the fulfillment of your destiny.
Oh destiny of cherished hope, of minds set on a course to triumph.  Oh willing humans, minds of courage, plot your course and set your compass.  A path glimmers in the darkness and light shines along the way.  A path of your choice.

A fellowship of supportive companions, a team of strength and collective thought.  Self supporting and congenial, a circle of compassion to help your life.

This strong support will take you anywhere.  Dream, oh brave ones, it can take you to the stars.  Set a path, a well calculated trail. Mark your way, don’t loose yourselves.  The path to a colony, a county, a wild and alluring place, started with the footsteps of the brave, as they set on a course called the adventure of their lives.

A dream from the mind of determined humans, strong wills, champions.  A course of the most daring adventure.  A course that anyone can take.  Think, plan, educate.  Skills and knowledge.  Success doesn’t come from dreams, it comes from happenings.

Wrap you fellows around you.  Hold them tight to you.  These brethren might save you one day.  Save and be saved!  Skills, knowledge, education.  Think, plan, plot your course.  Set your sails and fly.

The vessels cast off from the dock.  A course was set and dutifully followed.  The master at the helm was secure and intelligent, fully qualified and educated in all things seaworthy.  Land and a landing was the object, and success an imperative must.  A failure would be a catastrophe so immense it could loose the lives of the entire ship.  Failure was impossible.  Failure could not be contemplated.  All hands on board were skilled and trustworthy, competent and careful.

Hail, all you bravehearts.  The past sheds light on the glory days.  Days of courage, of immense deeds, of human toil and human might.  Not one success came without the constant support, drive and encouragement of the team that set itself to win.  Win your conquest.  Build your support. Your team must share your desire and propel you onward.  Good leadership and judgement, advice along the way.  A  collective thought, a group think.  We can fulfill this goal.  A mission to land and an object to colonize.  We can achieve this goal.  Minds set in unison, unalterable, unchanging.

The vessel has cast off from the dock.  Set your sail, chart your waters, point the compass, follow the route.  No drifting with the tides, no turning back for shore.

Hail bravehearts, set your course.  The adventure of your life awaits.
