Do you want to remember? Start reading.
Here are a few places to get you started. Their words. Their history. Their stories. I`ll start in Canada where I live and where I'm from. If you're from elsewhere, you might want to look around here and at the World Veteran's Federation.
Just take a bit of time from your busy day. Read a bit about how we got here. What some people had to endure. How someone took the time to stand between two opposing forces and stay the peace. Here we are now.
The Royal Canadian Legion
Canadian History Of Peacekeeping
Canadian Association Of Veterans In United Nations Peacekeeping
Canadian Armed Forces General History Of Operations
This represents a portion of the whole that makes up the world and Canada's contribution to that whole. There are many other stories from many other people and places in the world. People who've made sacrifices for the rights and freedoms that we all enjoy today. We learn the most from people who've had to fight for something that we take for often take granted.
There are many stories the world over and much to be learned.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and anything on this blog,
