True Patriot Love

Why am I proud to be Canadian? Because we stand unified and strong in the face of great evil. Our nation is collectively mourning the loss of just two men. only two. These men served our country and they were taken away for no other reason than being Canadian and being Soldiers. Just two men in a country that has a population of over 35 million people and still we all mourned, we all felt that this act of terrorism was not only an attack on these Soldiers, but a personal attack on each and every one of us. Our fathers, our brothers, our sons, and our neighbors. In the face of adversity, we come together and we support one another. Our nation is often mocked for being too polite, but I am damn proud that our people show empathy as a natural reaction to tragedy, we say please and we say thank you, and we hold the door open for everyone because everyone is our neighbour.

May you rest in peace Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent
