On Family Day...

Monday, February 17, 2014 3:12 PM

On Family Day, we wanted to share with you one of our favourite videos: it's of Patrick Stewart answering questions at Comicpalooza.  A woman asks him what he is most proud of that is unrelated to acting and he answers with a response that pays tribute to his mom, who was a survivor of domestic violence, and also talks about work he has done to address challenges faced by his dad.  In the course of his response, he passionately states that "violence is never, ever a choice that a man should make" and provides comfort to a brave survivor.  He demonstrates how our love for and experiences with family - whether wonderful or challenging - can ultimately inspire us to do amazing things.

Happy Family Day from One Spark.
