In 1973, 6 year old Phyllis Webstad was excited about her first day at St. Joseph’s Residential School in Williams Lake, BC. Her granny had bought her a new, bright orange shirt for the occasion, but when Phyllis proudly arrived at the church-run residential school, she was stripped of her clothes, and her hair was cut off short. Her new shirt was taken away and she never got it back. Forty years later, Phyllis remembers that the colour orange has always reminded her of how her feelings didn’t matter, how no one cared, and how she felt she was worth nothing. September 30th is Orange Shirt Day. Please wear orange to show your support for the important message that Every Child Matters.
