Today we remember all of those from our communities who so bravely gave their lives in both of the Great Wars.
The youth of our country heard the call and answered it. The call to freedom…the call to democracy..the call for Canada.
Patriots, every one of them to the last…from the cold fields of France, to the marshes of the Netherlands…we were there.
Our brave fighters, so far from everything they knew, but so ready to protect our way of life. There is no nobility in war…there is no nobility in suffering…but there is nobility in bravery, and in courage.
We must never forget the debt we owe to those we remember today. Theirs is a legacy not of conflict, but of peace. Of hope over hatred, and of understanding over division.
Lest We Forget.
