Lest We Forget

This morning I, like a good many Canadians, was glued to the CBC watching the memorial service from Vimy.   It brought a lump to the throat and a tear to the eye to see the several thousand empty boots placed around the site representing the Canadian lives lost during the taking of the ridge from the Germans.  It was a very graphic reminder of the cost and consequence of war.  Please God, never again.

  3. What is going on in the world now is very frightening. It seems that the powers that be never learn anything from the past.
