A Moment of Silence: Photos So We Never Forget

    A picture tells a thousand words. Words that could never adequately convey how war affects a soldier. Or how it affects their families. Or how it affects the world. The sacrifices, destruction, and patriotism could never be correctly written into sentences, no matter how hard we tried. In a tribute to Canadian veterans and veterans from around the world, we compiled a gallery of photos to remember. Because lest we ever forget, history may repeat itself.

    As we honour Remembrance Day, may I leave you with a few lines from the famous poem, In Flanders Field:

    Take up our quarrel with the foe: 

    To you from failing hands we throw

        The torch; be yours to hold it high. 

        If ye break faith with us who die

    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

            In Flanders fields.
