Canada 25 May: Mississauga, Brampton and Richmond Hill

Live from the road report by Enzina DeAngelis from notes by Seth Feldman: 25 May, Mississauga, Brampton and Richmond Hill:

As members of the World Harmony Run team, we are always pleased to welcome new runners into our midst, especially when they are so in tune with what we are doing.

Today the run was honoured by the presence of a very special guest; 11-year old track and field enthusiast Nikhile Mookerji led the pack all day as our main torch bearer.

Canada, 25 mai: Mississauga Compte rendu en direct de la route par Seth Feldman. En tant que membres de l'Équipe de la Course de l'harmonie mondiale, nous sommes toujours heureux d'accueillir de nouveaux coureurs parmi nous, particulièrement quand ils sont à ce point en harmonie avec ce que nous faisons! Aujourd'hui, la course eut l'honneur de compter parmi ses membres un invité bien spécial de 11 ans, l'amateur de piste et pelouse Nikhile Mookerji, qui mena le peloton en tant que principal porteur du Flambeau.

In the morning, at St. Marcellinus Secondary School in Mississauga, school Chaplain Shane Byrne articulated a uniquely Christian form of praise, describing the torch as a symbol of “peace, resurrection and change.”

The students then sang "Imagine" by John Lennon, read several original poems and recited St. Francis’s lofty prayer for peace.

En matinée, à l'école secondaire St-Marcellinus à Mississauga, l'aumônier de l'école Shane Byrne formula un éloge proprement chrétien, décrivant le Flambeau comme un symbole de " paix, de résurrection et de changement. " Les étudiants chantèrent ensuite " Imagine " de John Lennon, lurent quelques uns de leurs poèmes et récitèrent la sublime prière pour la paix de Saint François.

We gave a brief but energetic address to the workers in the warehouse of the Brampton Guardian newspaper.

Nous nous sommes adressés brièvement mais énergiquement aux travailleurs du Guardian Newspaper à leur entrepôt de Brampton pour ensuite nous rendre au service d'incendie de Richmond Hill. Le chef pompier Shane Baker nous y accueillit et se prononça de façon énergique sur le besoin d'harmonie dans le monde.

We then proceeded to the Richmond Hill Fire Department, where Fire Chief Shane Baker graciously met us with emphatic words about the need for world harmony.

Police Constables Larry Wood and John White of the York Region Force Bike Unit escorted us to the York Professional Care and Education The Children's Academy. The constables had received very short notice that the World Harmony Run torchbearers would be running by the police station and they kindly volunteered to escort the team to The Children's Acadamy and subsequently to the Running Room store. Unfortunately, while we were at the Academy they had to leave abruptly on a robbery call – welcome to life in the big city and to the people who endeavour to create harmony within it.

The constables' response to this situation was one of many examples of how people in communities all over the world respond to the message of the Run,“Harmony begins with me”.

Les officiers de police Larry Wood et John White des York Region Forces nous escortèrent aux immeubles du York Professional Care and Education Day Care, mais durent malheureusement nous quitter soudainement pour répondre à une alerte de cambriolage - cela fait partie de la vie dans les grandes villes!

At the Children's Academy, the children received us waving toy torches made in honour of the run. We were told that they were very excited to receive the World Harmony Runners and that earlier in the day they eagerly asked if the Harmony Runners had arrived when a group of joggers passed by them.

We ended the day with a 5k run from the local Running Room store to the Richmond Hill Municipal Hall, accompanied by Running Room store manager Bev Erdenberger.

Richmond Hill Mayor William F. Bell was pleased to meet us on the steps of the building and encouraged us graciously with words of tribute and support. He read a Proclamation declaring May 25, 2005 as World Harmony Day in Richmond Hill. He told us that he will be retiring this year after 18 years of serving as Mayor, but that he would definitely like to attend the Ceremony should the World Harmony Run torchbearers come to Richmond Hill next year.

Nous avons terminé la journée par une course de 5 km à l'Hôtel de Ville à partir du commerce the Running Room, accompagnés de Bev Erdenberger, la gérante du magasin. Le maire était bien content de nous rencontrer sur le parvis de l'édifice et nous encouragea par ses bons mots et quelques éloges!

You can send a message to the runners or read the messages.
