Amanda Would Have Loved We Day 2013

Back from WE DAY Toronto 2013. What a fantastic event. To be able to listen to the speakers and absorb what they had to say was pretty amazing. And then feeling the energy in the building with over 20,000 youth present. It was certainly one of those magical moments. Although I don't always feel the spiritual world around me, I did feel Amanda's presence at We Day Toronto.

Dear Sheryl Sandberg: Please Keep Predators Off Facebook

We are a community of concerned citizens in British Columbia, including Amanda Todd's mother.
