It's difficult, in present day, to imagine the trenches of World War One, the air raids of the Second World War, and even the fear of a Cold War reigniting. And yet each year, it is our duty to take a moment to thank those who donned our nation's uniform so that we could live in a country where we are free.
It is our duty to remember so that we do not repeat history. So that we don't have to fight the way Canadians not so long ago fought to protect the freedoms that we cherish so dearly today.
