Why Should These Features Of Canada Be Celebrated?
Our country Canada, has so much to share with us. Canada has breathtaking sceneries, tourist attractions, culture, diversity, and so much more! I think all of this should be celebrated. Very often, we take things for granted. We also ignore what's around us. We forget to stop and take a look at the beautiful country we are living in, and thank god for it. I think we should celebrate everything our country has given us because that's one way we can show respect and gratitude towards our country. One thing we all should keep in mind is that not everyone gets what we Canadians have. We have natural resources, beautiful views, rural areas, urban areas, clean water, and last but definitely not least, we are living in a free country. So, celebrating what we have is something that we all should do - and not just on Canada day or Independence day, but every single day.
