No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite. — Nelson Mandela

Real leaders lead with love. — Cleo Wade



“I do things every day without fear, because I am privileged, and I am privileged every day because I am white.

Being not racist is not enough, we must be anti racist. Social change is enacted when a society mobilizes. I stand in solidarity with all of those protesting.”

Like us, Banksy’s world-famous ‘The Girl with a Pierced Eardrum’ now wears a face mask.

His 2014 mural is a take on Johannes Vermeer’s famous painting, The Girl with a Pearl Earring. Banksy ingeniously used the outdoor security alarm for her earring. 

Now she is wearing a blue surgical mask. Sometime in the last few days it appeared over her face.

It is unknown who put the face mask on the wall but it is thought to have been the elusive Banksy himself.

The day started like any other day. Streets busy, planes flying, the week before school’s March Break. Many people had “vacation” on their minds, not the coronavirus.

Total cases in Canada – 100
Total cases in USA – 1000
Total cases in Italy – 10,000

Today, the WHO (Dr. Tedros Adhonam Ghebreyesus) declared Covid-19 a pandemic.

Then things started changing quickly, very quickly…
An NBA game abruptly cancelled and everyone asked to leave the arena. A Utah Jazz player was reported positive. The USA declared a travel ban on Europe. Tom Hanks and his wife said they had Covid-19.

Suddenly the penny dropped. Covid-19 was here.



*The new coronavirus was first reported in Wuhan, China.
