Royal Canadian Legion annual Remembrance Parade, Aurora Cenotaph November 06, 2016.
“In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.”
“We only need to look at what we are really doing in the world
and at home and we’ll know what it is to be Canadian.
“And each man stands with his face in the light of his own drawn sword. Ready to do what a hero can.”
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.”
