Remembrance Day Ceremony in Victory Square, Vancouver

Published by at 6:50 pm under Canada,Canadian Forces

Our veterans honored in Victory Square.

And when the parades and ceremonies are done, our memorials remain to honor them. Most importantly, they are in our thoughts today, not merely of some distant and historic heroics, but also due to the work our soldiers do today to liberate innocents from tyranny and oppression.

We will keep that faith.

    I think I know where that monument is. There’s a kind of obelisk there with the words “Is it nothing to you”. It always gets me thinking when I pass by there.

    Just outside VCC downtown, on the edge of Gastown. The park is usually vacant. Occasionally, I will see people looking at the monument. I often wonder what they’re thinking.

    I’ve been very much encouraged by the growing size of the ceremonies we’ve been having across the country. It’s a sign of emotional maturity by our population to show our veterans the respect they so dearly deserve.

    I love that little Chinese guy, I would take him home, but he seems pretty self sufficient.

    Great job of recording the event, in 50 years, they will be looking at that video. Sadly most of our fighters will be gone by then.

    Thanks Hunter.

    And also, I’m remiss in not already giving credit to the videographer who goes by the handle iubiam. You can see his profile at http://www.youtube.com/user/iubiam
