"I saw some kids get killed and buried up at the Kamloops school." Billie Combes
"I would insult the truth of who Billie Combes is if I reduced what has happened to him to a series of words. I have no desire to comfort or explain anything anymore, for none of that stopped his murder.
Many kind words have been sent to me since he died, but it isnâ€™t words that we need. What is required from all the consolers is the kind of raw courage that Billie showed the day he joined fifty of us as we occupied Holy Rosary Cathedral during a Sunday mass, despite his crippling memories of being stretched and tortured on a rack by Brother Murphy at the Kamloops Indian residential school."
