The right choice

Re: Remembrance Day on TV Western

To the Editor:

Thank you to the individuals who chose to broadcast the Remembrance Day ceremony from Ottawa, in the University Community Centre on Nov. 11.

In a day when, as Canadians, our generation is unable to relate to the realities of war at home, it's easy to brush off the significance of Remembrance Day. It's something I myself have been guilty of numerous times.

It was in listening to this broadcast that, for the first time, I was made aware of the great privilege it is to live in a country free from the trauma of warfare destruction. I sincerely hope these ceremonies will continue to be broadcast on campus each year.

As one of the speakers commented, "if they do not know, they cannot be expected to remember." With humility and gratitude I reflect on these things. Thank you.
