Lest we forget...

As I was sitting here watching the Remembrance Day ceremony from Ottawa, I was really touched by the passing of the torch. John Babcock, the last survivoring veteran of WWI at 108 years of age, passed the torch to a veteran of WWII, that person in turn passed the torch to a veteran of the Korean War..the torch was then passed to a military person who had served in Afghanistan.
I think that my wish is that there is no need or person to pass the torch onto after Afghanistan. That war would become obsolete and there would be no need for people to put their lives on the line every single day to give us the freedom that we take for granted.

Please remember the men and women who serve this great country of ours and keep them in your prayers. Not just today, but everyday.
