In Canada, November 11 is Remembrance Day. The 11th day of the 11th month at 11:00 marks the anniversary of the official end of the World War I. In contemporary Canada the day is now a day to give thanks to the Canadian Armed Forces and to honour the men and women that have given their lives in service to Canada.
This year, I’d like to share with you the commemorative editorial cartoon from Patrick LaMontagne that was recently published in the Edmonton Journal. Mr. LaMontagne wrote on his Facebook Page; “Both my wife and one of my editors asked me who wrote the quote in my Remembrance Day editorial cartoon that I posted today. While I’ve used quotes in the past, I would never do so without accreditation. The words in the cartoon, I wrote them myself.”
Today we’ll grant them all a silent moment, think on them gently and raise a toast to them…in the campo.
