National Day of Remembrance ...

Today, they remember the 730 names inscribed on the
Canadian Police and Peace Officer's Memorial in Ottawa.
Today they will remember those who have fallen
in place with names like
Spruce Grove,
Cape Dorset
and dozens of other places
where Men and Women in Blue
have answered the last roll call,
and who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
The circumstances of their sacrifice
are less important than the reality
that their lives ended in service to their country.
Today our Nation will pause to remember,
but some of us ... will simply NEVER forget.
Today we remember the 730 ...
For if we fail to remember them,
who will be left to remember but their families,
and we are ALL family.
They are Heroes in Life not Death ...
