A thank you to all veterans, to whom we owe every ounce of our freedom. God bless you for your sacrifices. We would not be where we are today without the young men and women who left their homes and travelled overseas to fight, hoping to see the world and come back victorious but more often than not returning to their families broken both in spirit and in body, or worse; never returning at all.
It behoves us all to honour a moment of silence today while we reflect on what they have given.
Today, I saw a weathered veteran in his dress tunics on his way to or from some Rememberance Day ceremony stop his vehicle to help an elderly lady whose car was stuck in the snow. It struck me that he was a person who had spent his whole career giving to others not because it was his job, but because he was a king among men who cared for others around him.
