Happy Canada Day!
And for my fellow Newfoundlanders and Labradorians, I wish you a thoughtful Memorial Day as we remember the Battle of the Somme at Beaumont-Hamel where we pretty much lost an entire generation of young men.
I've written about Memorial Day twice. In 2008 and again in 2011. It was an important day in our history – When the Dominion of Newfoundland fought along side Canada for the British Empire during the First World War. Lest we forget.
So this morning I'll be thinking of those who fell for us so many years ago, but this afternoon and evening is for celebrating the great country that we have today.
Have a great day!
