I would like to take a moment of quiet contemplation to think of those brave souls in all of the armed forces who have given their lives to secure my future. To thank those who presently serve their country to maintain the life I live today and those who will take up this calling in the future.
Remembrance Day is the nation’s way of giving thanks and showing appreciation for those who guard our safety and ask for no thanks, nor bounty. I would like to extend my thanks to those in other countries as well, for they work to ensure our safety too.
Thank you for doing this without any expectation for reward or thanks. Thank you for making it your duty to serve us. On this day, we, as a nation, shall show our appreciation of what has been done in the past, what is being done today and what is yet to come.
