Lest We Forget: Remembrance Day 2014

Today at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month we remember. Ninety-six years ago armistice was signed between the Allies and the Germans in Compiègne, France thereby bringing an end to World War I.

And today we also offer our profound gratitude to the men and women of our armed forces. We remember so that we might never forget.

I had the honour of laying a wreath at the Oak Bay Cenotaph in commemoration of Remembrance Day. Many hundreds of residents were present at Oak Bay’s memorial for the ninety-seven men and women who lost their lives during World War II.  We quietly pondered the sacrifices made by these men and women. Together we prayed for them. And we said thank you.
