There are many reasons why us Canadiens are respected around the world. Such as our patriotism, kindness, and genuineness.
We often forget what it means to be Canadian. We have freedom of speech, will, and endless opportunities. We love who we chose, and I feel that this is important in today’s society. Our country legalized Same-Sex marriage over 8 years ago, while some countries are still battling the decision. In doing so, we have the right to speak up for what we believe in and who we want to be.
Canada is known for our diversity. In 2011, census of population counted more than 200 languages spoken at home thoughout our country. We are home to over 35 million people, some of which have dreamed of living here, and had been finally given the chance. I have eight different cultural backgrounds, and our country’s diversity is important to me, because with so many backgrounds, I feel that multiculturalism is what makes Canada so special. We’re always welcoming, with open arms & an open mind for new changes.
Another important thing that we are recognized internationally for, is our manners. We are raised from a young age to say our pleases, our thank you’s, and our excuse me and pardons. We are polite and respectful to those around us. With respect comes acceptance, and we portray that in many ways! Such as, having the freedom to go to your church, or temple, we accept all races and religions.
We are so privileged to live in a country like this, a country that provides free education and healthcare, whether you’re female or male, black or white, old or young, Canada will attend to your needs no matter what. I find this inspiring to become a better person each and every day, because with these morals and goals set, we can achieve anything. The actions of love and kindness that we provide, restore faith in humanity, and with the strength and determination our nation has, we can make a difference one step at a time.
I am beyond grateful to call this beautiful country my home, and will be forever thankful for all that it provides me. I am blessed to live somewhere so special, and serene. I love my country and all that it has to offer.
Go Canada go!🇨🇦
