Thinking of soldiers, past and present today. I have two grandfathers who were Canadian military. I know my gramma always warned us that she’d stomp us with her army boots and, as I understand it, she wasn’t kidding…
My father-in-law and his brother both served.
Friends of ours have loved ones who are serving now, which in many cases means those same loved ones are far away.
I am not one who believes that war is the way for us to go in life, but I know there are times when it happens and it is those who serve, and their families, who pay the price. So I send my thanks to them today and think about the legacy that they leave… hoping that some day we learn from our past and create a future that is worth all that sacrifice.
