We Remember

At the 11th hour of the 11th Day we pause to remember those who were willing to make the ultimate sacrfice so we could live in a better world.  We remember those who were lost and those who lived with scars that would never heal.

We are proud to have an active member in the Canadian Forces, Uncle Chris (cousin Emma's dad). We are happy he is currently at home, but know the dangers for our soldiers are still high in Canada. Today we salute 3 Canadian soldiers who were killed recently at home: Warrant Office Patrice Vincent and Cpl. Nathan Cirillo who were killed on Canadian soil by madmen and  Private Steven Allen who was killed in a training exercise. 

Lest We Forget

The following have been borrowed from social media. We are sorry we could not find the sources of these very moving images.
