Remembering Our Heroes Past and Present

Today’s the day we rightfully pause to remember and honour the courage of those Canadians who fought to protect our freedoms.

Yet we must not forget about those Canadians who are risking their lives today for their country.

And the folks at the Canadian Coalition for Democracies have come up with a great way to say thank you to the men and women currently stationed in Afghanistan.

They are asking Canadians to donate to “Operation Rudolph”, a program aimed at purchasing special holiday gifts for each soldier in Afghanistan. Each gift will include a letter of thanks from students and adults.

This is a great way to make sure our troops enjoy a little Christmas cheer in a somber dangerous land.
