Beautiful gesture
From the RCMP Media website:

A Touching Tribute Given to Coquitlam Mounties- for all of us.

Last week, Coquitlam RCMP had a visit from a local Coquitlam Citizen who came bearing a special gift. Mr. FILUSHKIN attended the front counter with his daughter with 4 beautiful slate carvings depicting our fallen comrades in Alberta.

Mr. FILUSHKIN immigrated with his family,( a wife and 2 daughters), to Canada almost 5 years ago from Israel where they had resided for almost 9 years. The family came to Canada because of the peaceful and friendly people and have never had any regrets about moving here.

Mr. FILUSHKIN says that this horrendous event caught the attention of the entire nation, " it was so sad...they were all so young”. He wanted to do something in honour of them and what they stood for, so he turned to his hobby of carving and drawing in slate. Mr. FILUSHKIN downloaded the pictures from the internet and it took approximately 3 weeks to complete the carvings.

Coquitlam RCMP wish to express our heartfelt thanks to Mr. FILUSHKIN for this thoughtful touched us all deeply.

I learn. A lot. I push myself. A lot. The world is a small place, and getting smaller every day. I'm proud to have friends in every corner of the earth, and abide by the old adage that there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet.
