As I was making perogies today for Christmas, I was thinking about the political storm that hit last week, and I felt shame. How do we expect the people of Afghanistan to respect democracy, when our own politicians play silly power games. How can we expect our troops fighting for Afghanistan's freedom to sit silent and not comment.
We were so busy fighting amongst ourselves, that we forgot about those who are fighting for us in other countries. Many will be far away from their families for Christmas, and three brave souls are returning to us tomorrow. May the Canadians lining the Highway of Heroes give some comfort to the families and friends of these 3 fallen soldiers.
In this busy time, just before Christmas, let us remember all our troops, and what they fight for, our freedom. A Different Christmas Poem:
Our troops are not political pawns, they are sons and daughters, Mom's and Dad's, they are Canadians doing what our government has asked them to do, let them do it, with our support and blessings.
