Lest We Forget
Each year on Remembrance Day, we gather as Canadians across the country and commemorate the sacrifices made by our veterans with a moment of silence.
November 11 is an opportunity to pay tribute to the many women and men in uniform who have served and continue to serve to protect our rights and freedoms. At Westwind, we acknowledge that we are fortunate to live in a country where we can raise our families in peace. We owe a tremendous debt to those who sacrifice, and in many cases, leave their own families behind so that we may enjoy the rights and freedoms denied to so many.
As we observe conflicts occurring in other countries across the world, may we be reminded and be grateful that we are fortunate enough to live in a diverse and tolerant country free from the ravages of war. We recognize that our lives as we enjoy them would not be possible without the service and sacrifice of our men and women in uniform.
Our schools will be observing Remembrance Day on Thursday, November 8. We encourage all to join with the Board of Trustees as we attend our local Remembrance Day ceremonies on November 11 and pay tribute to our veterans and those who serve today by remembering their courage, sacrifice and fortitude. Lest we forget.
