When we remember
It is interesting to remember, but do we remember why we need to remember? Let’s have a look. Today is Remembrance Day in Canada. A day to commemorate the sacrifice of World War I and the signing of the armistice. A positive thing, in my opinion. But is it enough to simply just remember something like that? Suffering and sorrow were brought about by casualties, which were brought about by sacrifice, which itself was brought about by dedication. But this dedication could have simply been limited to protecting our own against forces other than armed conflict.
Armed conflict is the cause of this suffering. But what can we do to prevent this from happening again? In my opinion, and I’m convinced by this, all of the soldiers who fell during battle, as well as those who are still alive today, would have liked this conflict to be avoided if it would have been possible to reach the same resolution. The families and loved ones affected probably would have preferred that the escalation of conflict not come to that. So let’s make sure that remembering means something and that real actions emerge from this painful memory.
