Remembrance Day

In the busy week that has passed, in the busy week ahead, I don't want to forget tomorrow is Remembrance Day. Our chance to remember those who died in fights, some of which we agreed with, some we didn't, but always so that we would have the right to have those discussions. It is a time to be thankful to those who made it home, but nonetheless took the ultimate risk. It's a time to remember the adage about 'supporting our troops ... bring them home', and hope someday, in a perfect world - the world these men and women died for - there will be no more need to send our young adults off to war.

In the words of Rick Mercer:

Thank you Grandpa ... an 88-year-old World War II veteran. Thank you Uncle Tommy, whose peacekeeping took him all over the world. And to Kyle, my brother, a former reservist, who never did go overseas but would have in a heartbeat. God bless us everyone.
