Thank you for solemn remembrance



To the Editor:

I would like to say a simple "Thank you" to the hundreds of people who stopped and participated in the two minutes of silence in the University Community Centre's atrium on Remembrance Day.

Your silent support and dedication to the cause was phenomenal. Students at this university should be proud that most of us demonstrated we understand what Remembrance Day is all about. It is unfortunate The Gazette didn't think so.

Remembrance Day is not about the glorification of war. It is about remembering those who fought in the ugliest wars of our time and what horrible atrocities they had to go through. We should all be grateful and proud of those people who lost their lives for our freedom.

We must remember. If we do not, the sacrifice of those one hundred thousand Canadian lives will be meaningless.

I am proud to say that this has become an annual tradition thanks to a motion unanimously passed by the University Students' Council at the last meeting, moved by Michael Werenich. Again, thank you.

Lest we forget.
