On Remembrance Day
I get a lot of criticism for those two things.
I understand the point. I support our troops in that I want them to be able to come home safely to their families. I respect and appreciate everything our veterans did in the wars that proceeded my life.
I am thankful and grateful that I get to live my life in the way I choose because of their sacrifices. There is military blood in my veins.
However, I do not want anything I do or say to be misconstrued as supporting our current government's missions overseas, particularly in Afghanistan. I think our government has made a severe error in judgement and continues to do so the longer this mission continues.
Thank you, veterans. Thank you for the choices you made. I am glad you came home safely. I can't imagine the pain you've seen.
Thank you, Canadian Armed Forces, for what you do. Thank you for the choice you make. Please come home safely. I wish you painless days until you can be back with your loved ones.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
