So Sad…

Oh my heart is heavy…such sad news in Canada today!

An attack on our Nation’s Capital…Parliament Hill, has left everyone in shock.

Authorities confirmed shots had been fired inside Parliament and at the National War Memorial. The first reports of violence came just before 10 a.m. this morning when gunfire erupted at the National War Memorial, wounding a soldier who has since died.

According to media reports “that shooting was followed by a wild gun battle inside the Centre Block of Parliament Hill involving security personnel and the RCMP in which the gunman was killed. A security guard was also wounded, reportedly from shrapnel when the guard tried to grab the gunman’s weapon.

The Centre Block shootout occurred just outside the doors where both the Conservative and NDP caucuses were meeting. Prime Minister Stephen Harper was in caucus at the time, but was immediately whisked from the Hill to a secure location. The leaders of the other political parties are also safe.”

This is just so sad. Thoughts and prayers for everyone involved!!! May GOD keep our land glorious and free!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
