Today is 11, 11, 11, Remembrance Day. Earlier this week, when I read about the man who was stealing poppy boxes from Tim Hortons, it just made me sad, and angry at the same time.
There are fewer and fewer veterans around to help keep the memories alive, but we should never forget the sacrifices they made. I don't agree with a lot of what Don Cherry says, but we have to give him his credit when he spotlights the veterans each year and plays back the footage of the miles of crosses across Flander's fields in Europe.
Let's not forget the sacrifices of our modern soldiers too. Regardless of the politics, the passion to give your all for your country should never, ever be taken lightly.
We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.
Happy Remembrance Day. Lest we never forget.
