Remembrance Day 2014

As you may already know, I truly believe that without the heroic efforts of those who fought and continue to fight, both then and now, we would not have the freedom that exists today.

And I know that many of you out there honestly think we’ve always gone to war chasing “the boogie man”.

But on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, I’ll put my right hand over my heart and observe a moment of silence.  Because it’s Remembrance Day here in Canada.  And I believe it’s important.

Here is a video tribute to those Canadians who gave so selflessly of themselves.  Please take a few minutes to view it.

Thank you to Jonathan Wagner – WagnerMedia.ca for the beautiful piece.

 

And lastly, a small crowd spontaneously singing our National Anthem at the Canadian War Memorial where Cpl. Nathan Cirillo was fatally shot by a masked terrorist less than a month ago.

Remembrance Day 2010

Today is known as Remembrance Day here in Canada. It’s a day to remember those who fought for our freedom.

On the 11th hour of the 11th day or the 11th month we observe a moment of silence.

I have two videos for you this year. Both came to me from my good friend, ET.

The first one is an all-Canadian musical tribute to our soldiers past and present. Like me, you might not be a country music fan but I think you’ll still like this one. Available in high definition and with a wonderful audio track, it’s a lot more upbeat than the video I shared with you last year.

The second video is a beautiful Vimy Ridge tribute from a group of Canadian high school students. Vimy ridge was the site of a battle during WW1 where many Canadians lost their lives.

And please .. take a moment of silence at 11:00 this morning to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice, who fought to protect us or who continue to put themselves in harm’s way to preserve our freedom and the freedom of others.
