Once In A Lifetime

I had an amazing night tonight.
The 2010 Olympic torch passed by my hometown today. Westbank First Nation had an amazing amount of pull to get it right on their land to pass it off to the next person, and I'm immeasurably proud of our community representative, Barb Coble.
I had the pleasure of taking a 5 minute drive down to my local Reserve school, and take part in the festivities. I feel so wonderfully lucky to have even had this opportunity. It brought me to tears to watch it pass by as the youth of our community, and locals sang the Okanagan song to welcome it. I truly feel that it was a once in a lifetime opportunity, and my children were a part of it.
Video to follow!
