Lest We Forget. These three words renown across most countries to show our remembrance of those who have fought, suffered and died for freedom.
It means that we will never forget.
In regards to Remembrance Day services, being politically correct is not acceptable to me, and not to our Canadian veterans and all the war heroes who have paid the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf.
Paying tribute should never be an option, rather, it is a duty; a deep-rooted commitment.
The service men and women who fought and died for Canada during wars and conflicts for the cause of freedom that we all enjoy today must be remembered in messages of “gratitude, thanks and appreciation. There are messages of hope, and the placing of memorial wreaths to honour their service and sacrifices.
Many will say that Remembrance Day services are a matter of religious freedom.
They are so very wrong.
It is a matter of respect and remembrance.
Political correctness has no place in disrupting this solemn commemoration. Their sacrifices are instilled to be remembered by all; indifference and cynicism only promote apathy and disrespect.
We will remember them.
