Remembrance Day has Global Significance

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

remembrance-day-poppySo here we are coming up on another Remembrance Day. I’ve previously written about the importance of not only remembering those who given their lives but also thanking those who have or are putting their lives in harm’s way all to protect us.

Let me say that I am a very proud Canadian. That’s one of the reasons why people tell me I “ooze” pride when I talk about working for a locally owned company. I know I’m not the only one who thinks Canada is the best place on earth but why is it that we don’t show that pride more, especially when it comes to our Military? (more…)
