It's Remembrance Day in Canada. We take a moment to meditate on the horrific cost of war. The military and civilian lives lost. The young men and women who died without a chance to make peace with their families, their gods and within themselves. Whose last breath was spent in terror. The horror of war cannot be understated. It must never be forgotten when we turn our eye to threats beyond our shores.
We take a moment to honor those brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for something greater than themselves. We also think of those who still serve today. The wounded warriors who come home changed forever. I am deeply grateful I will never have to kill or be killed. I am humbled by the sacrifice of those who do in my stead.
