I am an idiot.
I’m not certain how or why, but I got it into my head that Bangladesh was a province of India, perhaps because I live in a country composed of provinces and my inadequate knowledge of world geography.
Bangladesh has been an independent country since before my father could spell his name!
Bangladesh, India and Pakistan are countries found on the Indian Subcontinent... for more information please click on this link:
Thank you to the kind Soupers who let me know of my error and treating me so kindly, seeing my intentions. Not a one of you mocked me or my blunder.
I have tried my best to fix the specifics of my tribute ‘contest’ and hope with my newest wording that I have not offended anyone! I was at a loss of what to do!
Canada is a large country that sits atop the USA, and I was one of those smug Canadians who would chuckle when I heard that some Americans believed we all lived in igloos, ate whale meat and said, “Eh?” after every sentence.
One of our popular comedians even had a segment on his tv show which poked at the Canadian myth and American opinion (sorry my American friends, only watch the following IF you have a sense of humour! No offence, lol, BY ME, intended)

Now, here I was trying to highlight the significance of GLOBAL AWARENESS.
Think about that for a minute. Let that sink in.
Yup, here I am saying we need to be more aware of the world and other countries and didn’t have a freaking clue that the COUNTRY that I was highlighting was even a COUNTRY.
Hand in hand.
So, I’m going to spend some time LEARNING about the world this year.
It’s a new year’s resolution that I am beginning in May.
Blessing sent to everyone.
Thank you SO MUCH. And I am sorry if I offended anyone... especially those on soup who either have large enough hearts to just shake their heads and chuckle at the silly Canuck and/or who gave me the smallest tap on the shoulder and said, “ummm...Hey, Nice Lady...”
