It’s strange to say, but I have no idea where my pride/support for our Soldiers comes from…
I didn’t have a parent or close relative that was in the army…my grandfather was an MP in the US Air Force…but there were no stories of a person going off to war and not returning or returning with memories that they would carry with them for the rest of their lives.
For some reason, there has always been this pride deep down inside me saying…I am Canadian, and the people that fought and gave me freedom were important people! People to be honored and remembered.
This week, we honor all the men and women that have stood for us!
Wear your poppy, attend a service this Friday, and take a moment!
