Today is National day of remembrance and action on violence against women.
15 years ago, Canada's worst multiple shooting occured. 14 women died because they were women.
It's sad that I feel like I should be lucky that something like that hasn't happened to me nor someone I have known. It makes me angry that I should have to feel lucky. But I do. I'm also happy to be living in a country where we can recognize that it is wrong to discriminate against women and also happy to be living in a place where a man can go to jail for beating his wife.

also, men, i am also glad that women can go to jail for beating their husbands...i just thought that the wife comment was appropriate for such an occasion.
