We must remember. If we do not, the sacrifice of those one hundred thousand Canadian lives will be meaningless. They died for us, for their homes and families and friends, for a collection of traditions they cherished and a future they believed in; they died for Canada. The meaning of their sacrifice rests with our collective national consciousness; our future is their monument.
We often take for granted our Canadian values and institutions, our freedom to participate in cultural and political events, and our right to live under a government of our choice. By remembering their service and their sacrifice, we recognize the tradition of freedom these men and women fought to preserve.
We, the undersigned, request that the Canadian Federal Government, reinstate November 11th as a National holiday to honour those who gave so much.
"To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high."
They did not fail, and we must not fail them! We have no future if we do not remember the past.
