I am the granddaughter of a WWII veteran, the great-grand daughter of two WWI veterans and the sister-in-law of a member of the Canadian Forces currently stationed in Afghanistan (who will hopefully return for duty safe and sound December 1).
I have the deepest respect for those who have been and are currently willing to risk their lives to try and make the world a better place. Without their sacrifices, I would not be able to sit on my couch snuggling with my pets, eating chips, with the biggest worry in my life being what am I going to watch on TV tonight.
Please take some time today to pay your respects to those who have fought for peace, freedom and equality in the world.
