Remembrance Day – We will not forget

November 11th is Remembrance Day in Canada (also Veterans Day in the USA), which is also like Memorial Day in the USA.  We honor the brave Canadian military personnel who died for our freedoms.  We should not and will not forget the sacrifices our soldiers, sailors and airmen and airwomen have made to protect our freedoms.

I love what the late Canadian Prime Minister John Diefenbaker said about the freedoms our armed forces fought to defend.

“I am a Canadian.  Free to speak without fear.  Free to worship in my own way.  Free to stand for what I think is right.  Free to oppose what is wrong.  Free to choose those who govern my country.  This heritage of freedom  pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.”

This Remembrance Day in Canada, let us remember and recognize those who made this sacrifice for our freedoms and democracy that we share in common.  God bless.
