We knew it was coming…but it still stings. 💔
I’ve been listening to 92.1 CITI and thinking about the magnitude of this loss. I mean even the Prime Minister was reduced to tears while declaring “We are less as a country without Gord Downie in it.”
It’s an incredibly sad day.
But at the same time, I think about his (and the band’s) legacy. This huge body of work that reached a nation. How many musicians/bands have such an impact that a nation can identify with their work?
Yes, it’s sad that he’s physically gone. But look what he did. Look at the important messages he left.
I disagree with the Prime Minister. We aren’t less of a country because he’s gone. He’s still here and always will be because he left us with insights into who we are and where we need to go.
