A good friend immigrated to this country from Israel. To celebrate becoming a citizen, there was a party with friends. To mark her fifth year in Canada she got a tattoo, a maple leaf, a red one, which is one of the most fascinating symbol of our land. Most wear it on their sleeve or hat or on a tee shirt and that's patriotic. But, she wears it on her forearm where it reminds her of the good fortune and security of being Canadian. That's commitment; that's pride.
