Let’s Remember…

In_Flanders_Field Today’s Monday Morning Rx is dedicated to the brave men and women who have served and continue to serve our countries, as well as the families who celebrate the victories and bear the pain. We honour and appreciate you…

If you are like me you don’t like wars of any kind. That said, in an effort to bring peace around the world, however fleeting it might seem, many people have sacrificed their lives, (and continue to do so), families have lost loved ones, and friends have lost friends.

As the heroes of WWI & II, pass on, we have a new generation with different challenges. Regardless of which side you are on, at least for today, let’s remember…

Last year’s post – Lest We Forget

Lest We Forget…

Today, am taking a respite from my usual job search blog post to remember those who gave their lives in the pursuit of peace – something the world continues to struggle with – to those who continue to serve, and to those have returned to an uncertain future.

While watching MSNBC this morning, I heard Richard Liu, one of the network’s anchors, mentioned the name John McCrae and showed the Poem, “In Flanders’ Field”. I wondered aloud if Liu knew that Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae was Canadian, and that he penned that poem on December 8, 1915.

Each November 11, I send around John McCrae’s poem to people in my network, because I believe it speaks volumes. Last year, I wrote a blog post 11 Things You Can do Between 11 AM and 11 PM On 11/11/11. Today, I want all of us to pause from whatever we are doing to reflect on those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, as well as those who continue to serve and protect. Let us never forget!
