I remember that night like it was yesterday. I was in Peterborough, Ontario. It was snowing and Loreena McKennit was playing a concert. The news trickled in all afternoon and evening, and what we were hearing was sickening. When Loreena McKennit took the stage, she played solo surrounded by candles, and we kept vigil with her for a while and then later at the war memorial, because there was no other place in town to greive women who had been killed by men.
That was 15 years ago, and I’ll continue to remember that day as long as the women of our families, communities and nations continue to suffer violence at the hands of men.
