Over the past few years we have been toying with the idea of not only leaving Texas but leaving this country. There are things about our country we love and things we absolutely hate. That combined with the serious decline of jobs for skilled tradesman in Texas has been fueling our desire even more as of late. The past few days Tom decided we needed to move to Canada. I of course support him in anything he wants (most of the Right now Canada has a severe shortage of welders and are practically begging people to immigrate. However one thing I found out is where as they beg they are more than willing to deny if we bring Miriam along. Of course we would NEVER leave our Miriam behind. What kind of country would deny a little blind girl immigrant status based on disability when she had 4 other people in her family who would and could contribute so much to society? It seems according to news reports this happens all the time. One french family who lived and worked 5 years in Canada are being forced out due to having a child with Cerebral Palsy. It is absolutely inhumane and I want no part of it. I would never want to live in a country where my child would have to experience that kind of discrimination, NEVER! No wonder so many Canadians come to the United States and no wonder they are desperate for skilled workers! It might be a physically beautiful place to live but Canadian government makes that country very ugly! It looks like we are back to looking in Oregon (or maybe Alaska?). If Tom wants to leave the country perhaps Alaska is as close as we will ever get, we can look over the border to Canada and say TAKE THAT CANADA LOOK AT US MAKING ALASKA BETTER WITH OUR BEAUTIFUL CHILD. I wonder if Ireland is this discriminatory against the disabled? My family immigrated from there to here, maybe we can immigrate back? How fun! lol

O Canada!

Our home and native land!
True patriot love in some of thy sons command.
unless your disabled we will see thee rise,
The True North strong and free
except for the blind, limp or weak,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
Against the cripples of the world, deaf
dumb , blind and meek!

No Canadian national anthem in our future. Thank you Canada for giving me a little bit of the respect back for my own country. But at the same time thanks for making me realize we need to have higher standards in who we let in. No more Canadians!
