To celebrate Canada’s Sesquicentennial, our family travelled to Ottawa over Canada Day. Perhaps the most moving moment was visiting the National War Memorial. We stood at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and circled the monument, studying the faces of the bronze soldiers. Our young children asked about the multiple dates on the base and we described the various armed conflicts in which Canadians have served and sacrificed.
This Remembrance Day, we all watched the service from the National War Memorial with a new appreciation. As Canadians, we are incredibly fortunate for our freedoms and must always remember those who sacrificed to defend them.
