    Terry Fox

    Thirty-three years ago today Terry Fox began his Marathon of Hope. R.I.P. Terry, we haven't forgotten. (If you don't know who he is, ask any Canuck they'll tell you.)

    I still remember where I was when I heard of his passing. I routinely pass the memorial where his statue stands high above the trans Canada Highway just east of Thunder Bay at the spot he was finally forced to abandon his run.
    He is unforgettable and an inspiration still.

    We were there just this past summer. Definitely an inspiration to humanity.
