Thinking of my sister Deb and my brother Doug, on National Siblings Day
So proud of all our kids, and today was a proud moment as Brandi took another step in her career in justice and public safety.
This is why Brandi will make a great Auxiliary Force Cadet; on our way to a party to congratulate and celebrate Brandi joining the Cadets, she jumps out of the car, with no hesitation, to help this fellow having a hard time with his wheelchair in the rain.
Reflecting on Canada Day and the freedoms we enjoy, and how people sacrificed for them. My mother Violet describes how her father left for war when she was 10 years old, and she and her sister and mother did not see him for six years, until the end of the war. Even with advanced memory loss, Violet remembers it clearly. It is interesting as well to hear Barb’s parents accounts of living in Germany as teens during the World War and having the same experiences, loss of family, food rations, fear of the unknown and all that comes with war.
