Remembering Those We Lost
Posted 10 November 2009 - 10:34 PM
Tomorrow on the way to the vet, I will drive along the "Highway of Heroes" here in Ontario. It seems that almost weekly people stand out on the overpasses holding flags as another fallen soldier's body makes its way along that highway to our base.
Please take a moment today to remember those who made our lives easier.
And, just as an aside, today is 3 yrs off the cigarettes for me! I know my dad would be proud.

It is so hard to comprehend the numbers of souls lost to war. My gratitude extends to them this day, as I can freely go about my life. Without them, it's hard to say where we would be. God Bless our veterans this day and always.

You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion". ....

I grew up right in the middle of Viet Nam...the first war that was really broadcasted on TV. It seems like War will always be a part of every generation. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those who are serving tonight and those who have lost their lives.

with them, how real the emptiness is, how profound is the silence these creatures leave in their wake."

A dog is the only thing that loves you more than he loves himself
