90 Years of Remembrance

While there are innumerable emotions, there are not enough words to express the full meaning of today. It has been 90 years since November 11, 1918, and the end of the Great War. More eloquent writers than I can explain the role that the First World War had in shaping our nation during its formative years.

Today has us looking back, but also considering the present and our future. From more than 60,000 deaths from 1914-1918, to almost 100 in our recent efforts in Afghanistan, Canada has not shied away. It is hoped, that one day, because of those that have gone before, we won’t have to.

Please take some time today, or in the near future to pause.

Lest We Forget – N’ oublions jamais
