Finding Kelowna

Kelowna Right to Life: Part 1 of 3

“You don’t have to believe in God to think that taking an innocent human life is wrong.”

“If you define life at the point of viability, what you’re saying is that today a 21-week-old foetus is a human being and is living, whereas 50 years ago that same 21-week-old child was not a human being simply based on the technology that’s available of that day; so that’s a very problematic position to take – that life begins at viability.”

About the Author

Giovanni is a poet, columnist, interviewer and photographer. His passion for literature and the writing arts began at three years of age when his mother read to him the poems of Giovanni Pascoli.

Finding Kelowna, as he explains it in his website of the same name, is a focus on the ordinary events, people and things that often go unnoticed. Its purpose is to reveal the startling brilliance of everyday life which may be beautiful, tragic or bizarre. Giovanni does this in a creative way that spotlights the sudden encounters, poignant moments and unusual circumstances that pepper daily life.

Through chance conversations and unexpected occurrences, the tone and character of Kelowna and its surroundings is explored. In so doing, Giovanni hopes that the reader will catch a glimpse of himself and of humanity in all its glorious imperfection.
