As is my personal tradition, I went to Streetsville for the Remembrance Day ceremonies. I have been going every year since I was 13 years old and I have noticed the diminishing ranks of veterans. It’s humbling.
This year there was a special moment when the father and sister of Marc Diab placed a wreath at the cenotaph: the crowd began to clap. It wasn’t expected and it was touching. It was awesome to see so many people pay tribute and understand what sacrifice was made. (Marc Diab was a soldier from Mississauga that was recently killed in Afghanistan.)
To those that have served and are serving: Thank You.
