This video is the plea to the Canadian government to help build a new school on a First Nation where the original school had been ruined because of thousands of diesel fuel that contaminated the ground. The government helped out by putting in “temporary portable trailers.” Or until a new one could be built. This is Shannen’s dream: a school for her community. For more information about this movement go directly to this link: Shannen’s Dream.
It is sad that in a First World Country, some children are still receiving education or lack there of in close below what the rest of the country receives.
There are plenty of videos that show the support for Shannen’s dream. Just makes me wonder where is the support that is truly needed: Canadian government support.
Let’s hope Shannen’s dream becomes a reality.
As the video reads “Hope you’ll remember us. Please don’t forget us.”
Canada… let’s “hope” you don’t “forget” about your future generation.
