Black History of Montreal Black History Month 

Black History of Montreal

In honor of it being Black History Month, I figured why not learn more about black history in our city? We tend to often learn about black history in the U.S. while we remain completely oblivious to the rich cultural heritage of the Black community in Montreal. It is important to use this month to celebrate black achievement and resilience In the late 18th century, numerous black immigrants from the West Indies and the United States arrived in Montreal’s Little Burgundy borough when racial segregation was outlawed in Canadian law…

“He said the way my blue eyes shined” Was the opening line to her favourite song Boy, it takes me back. “Love Story” used to be our song We danced every time it came on Can’t believe what it could have been I can still see her every time I close my eyes Back to those beautiful summer times But now everything has changed   We used to be so happy and so in love You were the queen that turn me in your king I never thought we were…

Deep End

Again! Again! Childlike, the voice softly echoes in my ears As I walk by the ghostly lane. Autumn breezily peeking in.    Seasonal depression lurks As the leaves placidly fall. The faceless child runs up to me. Wrinkling my leather jacket As she clings and hovers around me.    Again! Again! Filled with conflicting emotions. I crouch down by her,  In her eyes glass-like. filled with ambition.  I see my reflection   Oh to be a kid again, Not caring about tomorrow, running around Aimlessly,  Pure joy- Joy.  When was…

A Review of Arne Hassing’s, Church Resistance to Nazism in Norway, 1940-1945 Uncategorized 

A Review of Arne Hassing’s, Church Resistance to Nazism in Norway, 1940-1945

Arne Hassing’s novel, Church Resistance to Nazism in Norway, 1940-1945, is one that I would not change many aspects of, or rather object to. I believe that Hassing’s research and the topics he chooses to explore are extremely useful when discussing the idea of Second World War education; we often neglect the impact that smaller nations have had on the overall everlasting effects of the War. This is not to say that Norway’s efforts have had no impact, but that the internal struggles of the Church are something to reflect…

Haunted

Because I could not stride for Haunted, it did  kindly stride for me. I don’t like the fact that it, learned to stride for me.   Does Haunted make you shiver? does it?   One afternoon I said to myself, “Why is Cathy afraid of Halloween?” Cathy is usually daring and bold, but not when it comes to Halloween!   “The ball is going to be deadly”, Cathy would say, Masquerade Balls are the deadliest balls of all. Are you upset by how mortal it is? Does it tear you apart…

He seemed to find it quite funny.   “I’ve got some lovely blood candles, I’ll give you a very fine price.” “I’d rather have some souls.” The man blinked rapidly thrice.   The man seemed exceptionally creepy, And…
