Our community remembers

An editorial from the Boundary Creek Times staff

This week, across the Boundary, we, as a community, observed Remembrance Day. There are many, many photos of ceremonies in the West Boundary in the paper this week. That is by design, and it shows the depth to which our communities continue to care about paying respect to our veterans and those who have lost their lives. It is heartening to see so many people in all of our different communities remember the sacrifices made.

While many of us observing Remembrance Day today haven’t experienced the realities of war, instilling respect and the responsibility for remembrance is important for all of us. Year after year, we should all attend Remembrance Day ceremonies and teach our children to remember.

Thank you to all those that had a hand in the organizing and planning of these ceremonies and thank you to all those who attended. Lest we forget.
