Lest We Forget

Today is Remembrance Day here in Canada. We at Beanstalk would like to take the opportunity to thank those who sacrificed their lives that we may live in a country where we can start businesses, live free and (to borrow from the Declaration of Independance of our friends to the south) to hold tight the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is in fact these friends that gave us the tradition of wearing a poppy out of rememberance. Reminding us of what was sacraficed.

Too often left out of these thanks are those who, in more recent times, have risked and too often lost their lives to maintain peace abroad during Canada’s peacekeeping efforts. Today is a day for them as well for without them Canada would not be the country that it is.

It is difficult to expess the level of thanks one must feel towards those who lost lives, limbs, and loved ones in sacrafice for us; yet Heather Robertson captured beautifully our collective feelings:

We must remember. If we do not, the sacrifice of those one hundred thousand Canadian lives will be meaningless. They died for us, for their homes and families and friends, for a collection of traditions they cherished and a future they believed in; they died for Canada. The meaning of their sacrifice rests with our collective national consciousness; our future is their monument.

~Heather Robertson, A Terrible Beauty, The Art of Canada at War, Toronto, Lorimer, 1977

And thus, it is our duty to remember and our responsibility to appreciate and enjoy the freedoms that we have so that all that was sacraficed was not in vain.

Thank you.
