Remembrance Week – Monday Nov 10, 2008

by | November 10, 2008

Its been 90 years since the end of the First World War “The war to end all wars”. Canadians are still at war …

My country of brave men and women has served well and often.  I am humbled and blessed to be living in Canada and sincerely acknowledge the sacrifices that were made to make this a safe and free country to live in.

Kevin Myers, a jounalist of the Telegraph newspaper in Britain, wrote an article “The Country the World Forgot – Again” that sums up Canada’s contributions to peace.  It is a great read and makes me very proud to be Canadian.

Another mention, the famous poem “In Flanders Fields” was written by a Canadian John McCrae in 1915 at the second battle of Ypres where the First Canadian Division distinguished themselves by holding the line inspite of chlorine gas attacks.

“Lest we forget”
