In Remembrance

Today is Remembrance Day in Canada (Veteran’s Day in the US).

I found this memorial plaque in St Paul’s Anglican Church on Bloor Street, one of the biggest Anglican churches in Toronto. It seems to me to capture everything about the costs of war in a single small place.

  1. My friends and I visited Courcelette cemetery this summer. So many grave stones bear the inscription “A soldier of the great war. Known to God.” The immense scale of loss in that tragic war is unimaginable – until you stand on the very ground where so many young men lost their lives. Never again? Let us hope.
