    “I share this concern, and I have to ask myself what sort of feeble-mindedness could lead a person to reject a nationality that so many people in so many countries would do anything to earn for their children."

    I'm beaming with Canadian pride. Thank you Stephen Harper, for speaking the truth!

    Statement by the Prime Minister of Canada
    Oct 23, 2014

    Prime Minister Stephen Harper today delivered the following remarks in the House of Commons addressing the attacks in the Nation’s Capital:

    “Thank you, colleagues.

    “Mr. Speaker, I would like to begin today by recognizing and thanking the Leader of the Opposition and the Honourable Member for Papineau for their kind remarks and words of encouragement yesterday evening.

    “Mr. Speaker, in our system, in our country, we are opponents but we are never enemies.

    “We are Canadians, one and all.

    “We may be across the aisle from one another, but when faced with attacks on the country we all love and the things we all stand for, I know we will always stand together.

    “Mr. Speaker, today more than ever before, I’m quite pleased to see all of my colleagues from all parties in good health and good form.

    “Let me just maybe use that Mr. Speaker, through you, to provide a little bit of advice to my colleagues.

    “I think my position and a growing number of grey hairs entitles me to do this once in a while, and that is just to say, we all here are engaged in extremely demanding and stressful jobs.

    “But the stress that many of you faced yesterday was really beyond and above anything that any of us are really expecting to face.

    “I would just say while we resume our duties, and I’ll talk about that in a moment, I would encourage everybody here to take care of their health.

    “Be sure that you find some time to relax in the next little while, and also if any of you – because we are not all in perfect health – if any of you are experiencing any undue physical stress as a result of what occurred yesterday, please take the time to see a physician and get that checked out.

    “I also just want to say to Canadians – we heard a lot of feedback from Canadians yesterday.

    “We are all used to the feedback we get very regularly from Canadians.

    “Much of it in the form of brick bats, and some of it deserved.

    “But in this case, Mr. Speaker, I think we all experienced the tremendous outpouring of warmth and affection and good wishes from people across the country and we thank them, all of us here.

    “I just also want to convey all the good wishes that I heard personally, not just from Canadians but from our friends outside the country.

    “I heard from President Obama, from Prime Minister Abbott, from Prime Minister Netanyahu, through a statement from Prime Minister Cameron.

    “We’ve heard these expressions across the world.

    “I think we were all, as Canadians, touched by the wonderful gesture shown last night at the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey game.

    “So thank you to our friends in the United States and around the world.

    “Of course, Mr. Speaker, we know all too well this is not a happy day for everybody.

    “In particular, a terribly sad day for all of the family, loved ones, friends, colleagues of both Nathan Cirillo and Patrice Vincent.

    “We have seen photos of these lovely men.

    “We’ve all seen the pictures of these beautiful guys, as Don Cherry would say, and our hearts really are with all of them.

    “We are so fortunate to have people like this.

    “The past couple of decades has, you know, we see across the world, increasing places where the planet is descending into savagery and there are people who every day of their lives stand on guard for this country and for all of us, and we obviously want to convey our gratitude to these two servicemen and their families, but also to all the people who undertake this extremely dangerous work.

    “Mr. Speaker, I spoke of the state of much of the world and I think for all of us who are blessed to live in a country like this, it is hard to appreciate, understand, fathom how we can have people who so despise, are involved in a movement who so want violence, who so despise modernity, who so hate progress, that they can desire to drive out medical workers from their community, harm them, how they can enslave women, torture children.

    “How they can kill, want to kill anyone who looks or thinks different than them.

    “It is in a sense, Mr. Speaker, beyond our comprehension but it is very real and in this struggle in which we are engaged, in which not only our finest values must be put to work, so must be and will be the highest unity and resolve.

    “They are our ultimate and indispensible weapons and that’s what these people will face.

    “Mr. Speaker, with regard to the events of yesterday and in recent days, a number of questions remain and will all be answered over the course of the police security investigations.

    “But I can tell the House this today: the objective of both of those attacks was to spread fear and panic in our country and to interrupt the business of government.

    “Well, Honourable Members, as I said yesterday, Canadians will never be intimidated.

    “We will be vigilant but we will not run scared.

    “We will be prudent but we will not panic.

    “And as for the business of government, well, here we are, in our seats, in our chamber in the very heart of our democracy and our work.

    “Mr. Speaker, in all its diversity of peoples and opinions, this House personifies the spirit of Canada.

    “Canada will never yield to terrorism and neither will this House of Commons.

    “We carry on.

    “We will attend to the country’s affairs and we will be faithful to the trust that people have placed in us.

    “Now, Mr. Speaker, as I said earlier and I have been saying for a long time, we live in dangerous world.

    “Terrorism has been here with us for a while and dangerously close on a number of occasions.

    “I speak for example, I draw our members’ attention back to incidents such as the Toronto 18, the Via Rail conspiracy in 2013, and I could point to a number of others as well as many that most will never know about.

    “For that reason and with the belief and security that Canada is the government’s primary responsibility, we have over the years passed such legislation as the Combating Terrorism Act and the Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act to better protect Canadians and secure institutions.

    “Last week, our Government proposed amendments to the legislation under which the Canadian Security Intelligence Service operates.

    “And as you know, Mr. Speaker, in recent weeks I’ve been saying that our laws and police powers need to be strengthened in the area of surveillance, attention and arrest.

    “They need to be much strengthened and I assure you, Mr. Speaker, that work which is already underway will be expedited.

    “In conclusion, Mr. Speaker, we’re all aware and deeply troubled that both of this week’s terrorist attacks were carried out by Canadian citizens, by young men born and raised in this peaceful country.

    “I share this concern, and I have to ask myself what sort of feeble-mindedness could lead a person to reject a nationality that so many people in so many countries would do anything to earn for their children.

    “That is a question for another day.

    “For now, make no mistake, even as the brave men and women of our Armed Forces are taking this fight to the terrorists on their own territory, we are equally revolved to fight it here.

    “We live in dangerous times, yes, but the mission of our country and the work of this Parliament goes on.

    “And so does the work throughout this city.

    “Let me just say one final word, in recognizing all of the heroics of yesterday.

    “First of all, I know so many – I could certainly speak personally to my staff at 24 Sussex – Mr. Roger Charbonneau, the chefs, Tim and Tina, who were up all night.

    “But I know people who for all of us across the country and here in Ottawa were working day and night to make things as easy as possible.

    “Officials who were busy at work trying to respond to the situation, first responders and citizens who put themselves in harm’s way when this incident began to unfold.

    “But obviously, Mr. Speaker, and in conclusion most particularly the men and women of our security services, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Canadian Armed Forces, the City of Ottawa Police and most particularly, of course, Mr. Speaker, I would be very remiss if I did not conclude in acknowledging specifically the work of the security forces here on Parliament and the great work of our Sergeant-at-Arms.”

    Young or old you hold hands always. Even when you’re arguing.

    Really? How sweet! You don't often see that here in North America. I bet you hold hands almost all the time without shame or embarrassment when you are out with friends, or generally in public.

    Good post. Nice screen name.

    So how does anyone get anything done with only one hand? You don't have to clean the house together, do you?

    Touch is a very important part of being alive.

    It's one of the 5 senses for a reason.

    From what I've seen, Americans hug each other a lot, but they rarely hold hands for long. Germans seem to touch each other, but never hold on, the Irish/Scottish fight to show love, and the Polish/Ukrainian hold hands.

    Statement by the Prime Minister of Canada in the House of Commons

    Prime Minister Stephen Harper today delivered the following remarks on Canada’s contribution, in coordination with our allies, to the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL):

    “Mr. Speaker, in recent months, the international community has reacted, with virtually unanimous outrage and alarm at the rise of ISIL, the so-called ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.’

    “ISIL has established a self-proclaimed Caliphate, at present stretching over a vast territory roughly from Aleppo to near Baghdad, from which it intends to launch a terrorist jihad not merely against the region but on a global basis.

    “Indeed it has specifically targeted Canada and Canadians, urging supporters to attack, quote, ‘disbelieving Canadians in any manner’, vowing that we should not feel secure even in our homes.

    “It would be convenient to dismiss such statements as the mere rambling of lunatics were it not for the fact that ISIL’s deeds have been fully in line with its words.

    “More shockingly, ISIL’s words are matched by its actions.

    “In the territory ISIL has occupied it has conducted a campaign of unspeakable atrocities against the most innocent of people.

    “It has tortured and beheaded children, it has raped and sold women into slavery, it has slaughtered minorities, captured prisoners and innocent civilians whose only crime is being or thinking differently from ISIL.

    “Indeed by late last summer, ISIL stood on the brink of committing large-scale genocide in Northern Iraq.

    “It was at that moment that Canada’s allies in the international community, led by President Obama, decided to intervene.

    “Canadians have joined in this response.

    “On September 5th, I announced that members of the Canadian Army, in a non-combat role, would advise and assist security forces in Iraq battling the terrorists.

    “We had already begun, through the Royal Canadian Air Force, moving weapons and supplies donated by our allies to security forces in Northern Iraq.

    “And we indicated that Canada was prepared to do more.

    “Today we are bringing forward a motion asking this House to confirm its confidence for a government decision to join our allies and partners – the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Australia, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and likely others – in launching air strikes against ISIL.

    “In addition to these air strikes, the Government of Canada will, in response to requests from Iraqi authorities as well as other allies and partners, continue to assist in other, non-combat, counter-terrorism roles.

    “We will also contribute one air-to-air refuelling aircraft, two Aurora surveillance aircraft, and the necessary air crews and support personnel.

    “In addition we are extending the deployment in a non-combat role of the up to 69 members of the Canadian Army advising and assisting security forces in Iraq.

    “There will however be no ground combat mission, which is explicitly ruled out in the resolution.

    “These contributions are for a period of up to six months.

    “Let me be clear on the objectives of this intervention.

    “We intend to significantly degrade the capabilities of ISIL.

    “Specifically, its ability to either engage in military movements of scale, or to operate bases in the open.

    “This will halt ISIL’s spread in the region and greatly reduce its capacity to launch terrorist attacks outside the region.

    “To be clear, this will not eliminate ISIL nor automatically ensure that alternative governance is able to occupy its space in Iraq or Syria.

    “It will, however, open the opportunity for others to do so.

    “But again to be clear, while ISIL will not be eliminated, the risks presented from the territory in which it operates will be significantly reduced to those of other similar ungoverned spaces in the broader region.

    “There are, Mr. Speaker, two other matters on which I wish to elaborate.

    “First, the resolution confirms the Government of Canada’s intention to strike ISIL and its allies.

    “We will strike ISIL where and only where Canada has the clear support of the government of that country.

    “At present this is only true in Iraq.

    “If it were to become the case in Syria, then we will participate in air strikes against ISIL in that country also.

    “The revulsion of the Government of Canada to the actions of the Assad regime is well known.

    “But we are participating only in a counter-terrorism operation against the terrorists around ISIL.

    “We have no intention of participating in a war against the government of any country in the region.

    “Second, let me assure Canadians that the government is seized with the necessity of avoiding a prolonged quagmire in this part of the world.

    “The actions we have announced are ones that could be ended with relative ease.

    “Indeed, we and our allies are acting now precisely to avoid a situation that was clearly headed to a wider, protracted and much more dangerous conflict.

    “Let me also say that the military measures we are taking do not in any way preclude humanitarian actions.

    “There is no either/or here.

    “In response to horrifying human suffering, we have already been providing emergency shelter and urgent health care for thousands of civilians in Iraq through support to humanitarian organizations on the ground, and substantial assistance to the Government of Iraq.

    “This is in addition to large scale financial assistance already being furnished to the significant number of countries in the region that have been impacted by the humanitarian catastrophe in Syria.

    “Let me also assure Canadians that the Government will continue to be seized with the broader terrorist threats against Canada.

    “We have strengthened laws in this country to deal with the issue of so-called Canadian foreign fighters.

    “We have broadened the grounds for passport revocation against such people as well as allowing for the stripping of citizenship from dual nationals who engage in terrorist activities.

    “We will soon bring forward additional measures to strengthen the ability of our security services to monitor aspiring terrorists to where possible prevent their return to Canada or to where that is not possible give greater tools to be able to charge and prosecute.

    “Mr. Speaker, to return to the matter before us today, I urge all members to consider and to support the motion we have presented.

    “I do this, Mr. Speaker, in recognizing that in a democracy, especially one approaching an election, there is rarely political upside in supporting any kind of military action and little risk in opposing it.

    “Nevertheless, for regional and global security and, of course, the security of Canadians, this action is necessary.

    “The evidence of the necessity of this, Mr. Speaker, there is none better than the fact that the mission has been launched by President Obama, the leader who had withdrawn American troops and proudly ended the war in Iraq.

    “Of course, Mr. Speaker, one could say that while the mission is evidently necessary, we don’t have to be the ones doing it because others will.

    “But, Mr. Speaker, throughout our history that has never been the Canadian way.

    “It has never been the Canadian way to do only the most easy and praiseworthy of actions and to leave the tough things for others.

    “Indeed, Mr. Speaker, colleagues, we should be under no illusion.

    “If Canada wants to keep its voice in the world, and we should since so many of our challenges are global, being a free rider means you are not taken seriously.

    “The threat posed by ISIL is real.

    “And it is grave.

    “And it is explicitly directed, in part, against this country.

    “Left unchecked, this terrorist threat can only grow and grow quickly.

    “As a government we know our ultimate responsibility is to protect Canadians and to defend our citizens from those who would do harm to us or our families.

    “We also know that our country, like our allies, shares the duty and burden of all free peoples, to act against wider global threats when it is in our capacity to do so.

    “And when our allies recognize and respond to a threat that would also harm us, we Canadians do not stand on the sidelines.

    “We do our part.

    “On Monday, this House will debate the motion put forward for an air combat campaign against ISIL.

    “I call on all members of this House to show their support for this mission and of course our support for the brave men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces who are now and always ready and willing to answer the call of their country.”

    I think the Soul configures the Brain. That doesn't mean our brains will understand the reasoning behind it. ;-)

    I wonder if you are stuck in just one resonant dimension.

    I hope not. What a waste that would be, and the Universe wastes nothing.

    Fearing is human.

    The fear of failure is ‘human’ until we remember who we really are.
    My body is just where my soul lives while I am “alive”.
    When my schooling here is done, I'll be going home.
    (To what I call God, but it could just as easily be called Creation.)
    Our concepts as humans are so limited. We shouldn't hold that against ourselves.

    Give yourself a break. Give yourself a second chance. You aren't meant to be perfect, or you wouldn't need to be here.

    You were created for a reason. Don't ever forget that.
