We’ve Already Forgotten

Whatever we have that is good and worthwhile, is generally something we've fought and sacrificed for.

We’ve all spent too much time dealing with the death of the Palestinian Junkyard Dog Arafat.

It’s now time to write about the noble warriors who fought the scum of the earth, beasts like Arafat, so we can all be safe and free.

It’s November 11, 2004, and I’ve just returned home from the Memorial Day (Veteran’s Day) Service for REAL HEROS in downtown Montreal.

From the ceremony, Anne and I visited the cemetery where my parents are buried side-by-side, and placed a Poppy at their grave-site. I shed a tear in their memory, and in the memory of the men and women who made Canada special.

These heros are from Canada’s last great generation. The generation who gave us a magnificent country which we’re squandering on the alter of political correctness, cowardice, and selfishness.

It tears into my heart that there were only a few hundred people who stood in the cold drizzle in downtown Montreal, to pay tribute to our fallen heros, and the very few who are still with us.

I clapped my hands together as hard as I could for the elderly VETS as they marched by. They deserved to hear a great deal of adulation. To our great shame, there were very few people there to give it.

Tears flowed freely down my cheeks as I saw the men my father used to march with, until his death some 10 years ago. And if I squinted hard enough, I could just about make him out wearing his war medals, and his Canadian soldier’s beret with the Star of David upon it.

Whatever we have that is good and worthwhile, is generally something we’ve fought and sacrificed for. And whatever we have that is painful, is generally something we didn’t sacrifice to avoid.

Canada is rapidly becoming irrelevant on the world stage. And as a unified REAL country, it’s not looking too good either. And that’s because we’ve lost our way, and are no longer prepared to sacrifice, especially when it comes to doing the right thing.

Imagine this irony:

Canadians can’t be bothered to turn out to pay their respects to the men and women who’ve sacrificed everything for our freedom. But, by tomorrow, November 12, 2004, the world will turn-out in Egypt to pay homage to a MASS MURDERER.

LEST WE FORGET.

  • I wish you all the best in all your future endeavors and am grateful that you will remain a voice for the silent minority that is becoming the majority. I love reading your columns. You both stay well and take care of yourselves, Mr. And Mrs. Galganov, and if you ever make it to Southern California, let me know. Would love to meet you in person. I feel like we’ve been friends forever……or at least as long as you have been writing and I’ve been reading.
