    Lost birthdays remembered
    Inuvik—For a moment in time, at least, they were children once more as they each held up a cupcake with gooey vanilla-chocolate frosting and a tiny, flickering candle.  And, as the lights were dimmed, those gathered around them sang a rousing “Happy Birthday” in English, French, Inuktitut, and other aboriginal languages.
