Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!

Consciousness is not a phenomenon of the observable universe. It is that which makes the universe observable. Consciousness is the manifestation of God within us!

Saturday Morning Confusion About Residential Schools.

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into perspective here!"

Please stop calling kids who went to residential schools "survivors!"

Sure there were a lot of things wrong with these schools but the basic idea of taking kids from the far north and giving them an education was not that bad.

 Sure, what happened to some of these kids needs to be looked into, but they are not survivors! The Holocaust had survivors, the Armenian massacre had survivors, soldiers that were in a war were survivors, but these kids, in some cases, were victims, not survivors.

Since we're on the subject I'm not too happy where the "missing and murdered women" thing is going either!

It's not a great mystery kids, these women went missing and were murdered by members of their own community (husbands, boyfriends) or because they lived a lifestyle rife with drugs and prostitution.

There's no great mystery here!

Folks I'm all for helping people who need it, but let's not make martyrs out of them!

The way I see it anyway!
