    Today is Remembrance Day.

    Remember those that gave their lives and sacrificed for our freedoms so that we can raise our children in a free, safe country.

    We have so much to think about today, and so much to be thankful for to those who did what they knew they had to do.

    • More than 66,000 in the First World War.
    • More than 44,000 in the Second World War.
    • 516 in the Korean War.
    • 121 in peacekeeping missions.
