"We must remember. If we do not, the sacrifice of those one hundred thousand Canadian lives will be meaningless. They died for us, for their homes and families and friends, for a collection of
traditions they cherished and a future they believed in; they died for Canada. The meaning of their sacrifice rests with our collective national consciousness; our future is their monument."
- Heather Robertson, A Terrible Beauty, The Art of Canada at War.
My hearts and thoughts go out to those who served, and those who serve today, especially those putting their lives in peril in Afghanistan.
