Lest We Forget

Akin to Veteran's day in the US (who celebrate the end of the war on the Sunday), Canadians (and Australians) everywhere pay their respects today to those who fought in the first World War. In a symbollic sense, veterans of the wars that proceeded WWI are also honored. Let me take today's post to reflect on what their sacrifices have meant. Without them, we may not have had the freedom to do the simple things that we may take for granted today. For example, blogging in itself may have been outlawed if our freedom of speech was taken away.

Praise Elune for their efforts. May the light bless those who live peacefully now, and those who rest in peace. See you tomorrow.
