Remembrance Day 2013 – Lest We Forget

Please do something for Remembrance Day!
Attend a Remembrance Day ceremony in your area.

With all the world conflicts taking the headlines, it can be easily dismissed as supporting  war or supporting a militant society.

What I believe it means is that many, many men and women sacrificed (and are still sacrificing) their personal freedoms and too often their lives for the common good of all. I  lost a couple friends in Afghanistan.

During my service career I have visited the Canadian War Graves Cemetery outside the town of Dieppe and the Allied War Graves Cemetery in Ramleh, outside Tel Aviv Israel. To see the rows and rows of crosses, to read the names of common Canadians who put their lives on hold to go and fight somewhere far from home….never to return.

I go to commemorate the Living and the Dead.

Please support your local Royal Canadian Legion branch by buying a poppy. They do great work helping veterans.

 

Lest We Forget.
