2020 look back #5
In Memoriam – Let these few images of remembrances from this past year represent all those who are sadly no longer with us. Today, the heartbreaking number of total coronavirus deaths posted worldwide stands at 1,807,472, a number that is hard to comprehend. The journey we are all on together still has a long way to go, as we say thank you to the heroes amongst us once again.
Seventy six years later a different generation is now marching throughput the world for victory over a different enemy, an enemy clothed in the uniform of racism, injustice and autocracy. Like the heroes of yesterday storming those beaches the heroes of today demonstrating in the streets will also be victorious.
On the 76th Anniversary of D-Day we remember with gratitude the 150,000 Allied troops that stormed the beaches of Northern France and began the march towards victory and the overthrow of Hitler and the Nazi regime.
Lest we forget 🇨🇦
On the 75th Anniversary of the liberation of the Netherlands by the Canadian Armed Forces what better way with which to honour them all than with these Dutch tulips in triumphant bloom on our deck in today’s glorious sunshine.
Lest we forget.
In the words of the Canadian Prime Minister our “season of grief” continues, as today we mourn the loss of six members of the Canadian Armed Forces whose helicopter went down off the coast of Greece: Sub. Lt Abbigail Cowbrough; Capt. Brenden Ian MacDonald; Capt. Kevin Hagen; Capt. Maxime Miron-Morin; Sub-Lt. Matthew Pyke; Master Cpl. Matthew Cousins. We send heartfelt condolences to all the families of these Canadian Armed Forces heroes who are grieving today, as we grieve with them. 🇨🇦
Sub.Lt. Abbigail Cowbrough who was a young Nova Scotia naval officer played her bagpipes only two weeks ago on the deck of HMCS Fredericton to mourn the loss of her fellow Nova Scotians who were so cruelly murdered.
