Admire Your Backyard
As a first generation Canadian, I've travelled to many places and I was born in a country that has huge population of people experiencing poverty. Immigrating to Canada has opened my eyes to the opportunities, the wonders and the beauty of this country.It has offered me so much fulfillment and enrichment in my life that I could never imagine I could ever find elsewhere. Whenever I stop to look at the natural beauty of this country, I realize that I cannot ever measure the gratitude, love and absolute awe I have for the country that has given me so much yet has taken very little from me. There had been many instances in my life that I have stood near the River Valley of Edmonton and admire the beauty of my city and province. A wave of thankfulness washes over me and I realized that every Edmontonian, Albertan and Canadian should always stop, breathe in the beauty of our country and be mindful of how much our country has given us. And this is why Canada is my home.
