Lest We Forget

Lest We Forget
Lest We Forget

In honour of those who fought for our freedom, we will remember.  We are so fortunate to live in a country of such freedom.  Our soldiers fought for a freedom that we often take for granted.  We are blessed in Canada to express ourselves- choose our religion, contribute to society, pursue our dreams.  There are many people around the world who still do not enjoy such liberty.

On Remembrance day, it only seems fitting to celebrate the beautiful country we live in and the freedom we have to explore its beautiful peaks.  What a privilege to time to salute those who have served whilst in the majestic mountain surroundings,  and to thank those who have died for us with every step as we move through the landscape.  How fortunate that we can stop, to bow our heads in silence, and bask in the beauty that is of a strong and free Canada.
