Whitby, Ontario, Canada
The shadows of the past
Embrace the reflections of our childhood
When we were carefree, innocent,
Filled with hope and dared to dream.
The shadows of the present
Reflect the reality of a troubled world
Where conflict, greed, power and fear
Have replaced kindness and compassion.
The shadows of the future
Are still on the horizon
They hold the opportunity and the promise
Of harmony and everlasting peace.
