Both my Grandfather & Uncle fought and survived wars. I was too young to ask them about their bravery, about what it was like and I never thanked them. Now I remember veterans all year long, the turmoil in our world is on the forefront of my mind, with the internet and media you hear about the battles everday.
Recently Cpl. Nathan Cirillo was killed, he was unarmed and standing guard at a ceremony, a coward, an extremist took this young mans life.
He was a father, a son and now a fallen soldier.
Today I will thank my Grandpa and thank my Uncle and the millions of others for their bravery and sacrifice.
At 11am today I will stand, hand on my heart remembering....
2013 - Remembrance Day
