A comment about history

“History only repeats itself if we fail to listen the first time” — Anon

Today is a day dedicated to learning the lessons of the past.  The world of 2011 is no more safe or secure a place than the world of 1911 or 1811.  It’s just different.  The Good Guys have changed, the Bad Guys have changed, but in the end, we are left with a public debt of thanks to the men and women of our Armed Forces who volunteer to put themselves in harm’s way to ensure that we, as Canadians, have a country that is worth living in.

So at 11am today, take a minute and say thank you to a Veteran.  It is the least we can do.
