“We’re all aware and deeply troubled that both of
this week’s terrorist attacks were carried out by Canadian citizens…
By young men born and raised in this peaceful country.”

— Prime Minister Stephen Harper in his address to Canada’s House of Commons

RIP Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent
— run over by a car during an attack in
Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, QC on Monday.

RIP Corporal Nathan Cirillo
— shot dead at point-blank range, while guarding
the National War Memorial in Ottawa on Wednesday.

God keep our land glorious and free!  ❤ Jackie

    • Thanks Jean 🙂 Just feeling a little stunned and having a tough time processing how this week’s attacks could happen one after the other. Can’t comprehend the radicalized hatred that leads some to purposefully destroy the honourable lives of others (their fellow countrymen—not to mention the young families that are left to carry on in fatherlessness). It’s unfathomable 😦 ❤ ❤

    • Sadly true. We weep 😥 There are no words to fathom the hatred behind a plot to murder, in cold blood, the ceremonial guard who stands in honour of his country and in remembrance of the sacrifices made in the fight for freedom and peace 😦 ❤ ❤

    • Thanks Angela 🙂 The news was indeed shocking 😦 In the week since, though, there’s been an increased sense of patriotism and community. My hope is that this experience will make us more pro-active to the threat of terrorism 🙂 ❤ ❤
