Hello Canadians, we are sitting here today with Frenchie a survivor of the dreadful outcomes of global warming and the dream epidemic on the 50 year anniversary. How are you today Frenchie?
I’m doing well, how about yourself?
On this solemn day we want to remember the bravery and hope that your people portrayed through the gruesome times we put you through. We have many questions for you today that we hope will provide some answers for the many young people who struggle to understand the past of our society. How did you manage to create an identity for yourself during a time when survival was the sole priority?
Well when you are constantly on the run for your life it can be very easy to lose track of yourself. I discovered that surviving just to survive wasn’t going to get me through this but being alongside people and finding purpose in protecting and fighting against the wrong really brings out your true colours.
So that being said, would you consider the most influential factor on your survival, the people around you and the hope they gave you?
Most definitely, losses within the group only sparked more motivation to overcome the difficult times, and being surrounded by the people I grew to love made me realize the importance of not giving up.
That’s very interesting. Do you think that you've changed over the course of time of these events?
Yes definitely, in the beginning when I first lost my brother and my family, I felt broken.
