The lump in my throat was threatening to choke me, as I sat on November 11, 2010, and watched the ever increasing line of names, and dates scroll down the screen.
Remembrance Day in Canada, known by our Southerly neighbors as Veterans Day, is a day to Remember and Honor our heroes and soldiers who struggle valiantly for peace on a global scale. This year I thought about all of our soldiers, not only those in known war zones, but the men and woman on our streets, in our ghetto's, at religious sites, and called out to clean up after acts of terrorism.
And I reflected once again on that dash, the space between the dates, that represents all they did. And I gave thanks, for their lives, dashed.
All Gave Some, Some Gave All.
