we are going to heal…

I hear people say that it will take seven generations to fix this, and I say “Please don’t say that”, I say that the most important thing to do is to start the healing process. Not how long it is going to take. Let’s start it right today, right this second. Let’s say we are going to heal. We are going to work at healing, it will become our road, not our destination. We’re going to heal.

-George Black, “Century of Genocide in the Americas: The Residential School Experience“,2002
