It is a sunny day in Vancouver, and yet, our hearts are sad for those who have had the courage to go to war, and who paid with their lives to protect our freedom. We also honour those who continue to put themselves in danger to protect the rights of others in distant countries and at home in Canada. On days like this we feel the fragility of life. We want to remember the past so we can do better in the future.
I also know that some of our Exit planner customers who have lost loved ones in the last year will feel the poignancy of this day in the way that trauma makes us especially sensitive to loss. I wish you peace, comfort and courage.
