As I sit here thinking about what I will chat with you about this month, it suddenly occurred to me that our monthly General meeting will be held on Remembrance Day. It is befitting that our speaker, which is about Mississauga’s heritage, will touch on the impact WW II had on our city, but I am also reminded that one of the last trips I took before Covid, was to visit the Canadian sites of the Great War – the War to end all wars…..
As you know, I am an Immigrant to Canada some 45 years ago, but have developed a deep sense of gratitude for the lives lost and the price these men and women paid to allow us to have the life we now enjoy, and some take for granted. I do not, and my visit to Belgium only made my gratitude deeper. I took this picture at one of the more famous sites in Belgium, the St Julien Memorial. to see more pictures and a write up of the St. Julien Canadian Memorial CLICK HERE.
