Seize ans

Today is the sixteenth anniversary of the Montreal Massacre.

How can it be only sixteen years ago? It seems so much longer that it's been part of our emotional landscape.

Lepine killed those women because they were women who wanted an education - characteristics I share and cannot change. To know that there are people out there who hate you to death for something you can't change - your sex, your skin colour, the religion you were born into, your sexual orientation - that is something that chills you to your very core and it's why the anniversary of the massacre affects me very depressingly and profoundly every year.
