Remembrance Week 2005


I saw one of the simplest, most moving war memorials this past September along the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. As we mark the sixtieth anniversary of the end of World War Two it seems fitting to share the memorial’s inscription, recalling the splendid scenery that I encoutered on my visit.It reads as follows:“They will never know the beauty of this place, see the seasons change, enjoy nature’s chorus. All we enjoy we owe to them, men and women, who lie buried in the earth of foreign lands and in the seven seas. Dedicated to the memory of Canadians who died overseas in the service of their country and so preserved our heritage.”
