It was an unseasonably warm day for this sombre event this year, something we all needed. I was humbled more so this year than others due to the recent events where some mentally unbalanced individuals decided to take the lives of our soldiers on Canadian soil. These people can only be described as cowards but the Canadian spirit rose above this to embrace what we have and hold dear...freedom. Freedom to have differing beliefs, speak openly about them and demonstrate them in public.
I reflected on what a GREAT and WONDERFUL country I live in and felt proud to count myself as a Canadian.
