Tomorrow, November 11, is Remembrance Day across Canada and in our Communities.
It’s the day we acknowledge and show gratitude for the bravery and sacrifice of those who served their country and those who continue to serve our country and our communities today.
Many made the ultimate sacrifice in World Wars and other conflicts. Their sacrifice has allowed us to experience the safety and freedoms we have today.
This Remembrance Day will be different from that of previous years due to the absence or scaling down of Remembrance Day services caused by our dealing with the reality of COVID-19.
Let us however take time tomorrow to reflect and remember in our own way the contributions made by Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Veterans and those currently in service. Take time to observe your own moment of silence in their honour. We pray to the Creator to protect them.
Act of Remembrance
They shall grow not old
As we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them,
Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the Sun
And in the morning
We shall remember them.
