[Note: This is a repost from my personal blog, My Journey. It was originally posted on November 11, 2009. The video is well worth watching several times. Please take a moment to watch the video and ponder the price so many have paid to make Canada the great nation that it is.]
I come from a strong military family with ancestors that were instrumental in shaping the history of Canada. I grew up surrounded by relatives who had fought for this country. Some of them made the ultimate sacrifice and while they are no longer here they live forever in our memories. If this video does not bring tears to your eyes, nothing will. On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month we honour our fallen with 2 minutes silence from shore to shore of our great nation, Canada. Please join our nation in showing our respect and how thankful we are for enjoying the freedom they fought so hard for.
