Children’s Book The Train, written by Jodie Callaghan.
Ashley meets her great-uncle by the old train tracks near their community.
Uncle tells Ashley the story of the day, many years ago, when he and the other children in their community were taken away on the train to a residential school, and how their lives changes forever. They weren’t allowed to speak Mi’gmaq, and there was no one to give them love and hugs and comfort.
Ashley holds her uncle’s hand as they sit together by the train tracks.
“Don’t worry, Uncle. I’ll wait with you.”
