Lest We Forget…

On November 11th, we pause to reflect on the sacrifices of the women and men who have served Canada – those who gave their lives, and those whose lives have been forever changed.

 

My father-in-law, a Spitfire pilot during the Battle of Britain, found solace in his favourite poem:

 

The drum is silent now,

And the wind sighs

Where once they walked;

And the stars, which watched

The valour of their days,

At each new dusk

Remember.
