Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day is an opportunity to remember and pay respect to those who have fought and died for the freedoms that we all cherish. While I always treated Remembrance Day seriously, the day is all the more painful for me now that I have personally lost a very dear friend.

My friend Michelle Lang, a journalist, died along with four Canadian soldiers as a result of an improvised roadside explosive device while she was in Afghanistan reporting on the war.

May Michelle and all those who have died in conflict rest in peace.
