Our He­roes

Sherbrooke Record - - REMEMBRANCE DAY -

Those who stood in line, who gave up their free­dom, their life­style, for those who could not when the world was in cri­sis.

They an­swered the call of a na­tion com­mit­ted to fight for the rights of each one and all, to live se­cure and free.

And not all who vol­un­teered, were qual­i­fied by age, but their com­mit­ment to the cause was greater by far than their fear of death.

The truth of the mat­ter is that many who served, their life was cut short as they gave all they had.

There are those who re­turned, scarred for­ever, by what they ex­pe­ri­enced day af­ter day. There are those in­terred abroad who stand as a re­minder of the cost of our free­dom.

Those who re­turned, and those who did not, stand proud and tall in the hearts and minds each Re­mem­brance Day. They are our he­roes, each one and all.
