"This ... will a good man teach his son..."

Just got back from the Remembrance ceremony in Dundas. I was well impressed.

Many veterans were in a parade that included marching bands, pipers, soldiers, and just at the moment they were marching up the main street into town, a Canadian jet screamed up the main street in perfect alignment with the street - a perfect moment.

It was a most moving ceremony, I was impressed. People clapped as the veterans walked up. Not cheering, but a solem thank you.

To thier thanks, I add my own. I watched these veterans sing the words "Oh Canada we stand on guard for thee..." and realised that they actually did. Thank you.
