One of the privileges we enjoy as Canadians is the right to free speech, something we take for granted but, was won for us by those who fought for our country and prevented those who stifle free thought from taking it from us.  My blog exists because of the sacrifices made by those before me and hopefully we can protect this privilege in the future.  Some paid the ultimate sacrifice and were denied the benefits we now cherish.  Take a moment to consider how lucky we are that we can spread the truth so easily.  Some still try to stifle the truth through lawyers and bully boys but, we as Canadians ,will continue to protect what has been earned for us.  Take a moment this November 11th to respect those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to give you what you have now.

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 are the Dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved, and now we lie

In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields.

Colonel John McCrae
