Montreal Vigil to Commemorate Victims of the Quebec City Mosque Attack

Walking from Little Italy toward the Park Avenue metro I was soon joined by dozens of walkers and drivers.

I heard a small boy, brandishing his own tiny sign, say proudly, “I’m protesting for peace!”

His mother replied tenderly, “Yes, you’re protesting for peace.”

I asked her what his sign said, and she replied, “It says, ‘Je suis Musulman.'”

And so he was. And so are all who strive for peace.

Peace out,

The Mindful Bard
