Just got back from the ceremony at the Gander Memorial Heritage Park which incorporates the Cenotaph as well as other monuments. It will eventually include a monument about Sergeant Gander and such events as Gander’s response to 9/11 and the Arrow Air Crash.
We live in a country where we have the best rights and freedoms in the world.
It`s not because we deserve them. Everyone deserves them.
It`s because we`ve made them priority, we`ve elected governments (and rejected others) that made them priority and because we`ve stood up and defended them.
We`ve also stood up and defended them for others and unless your family tree can`t be traced to another country, those others are our families too and our ancestors were fortunate to come here and we should continue to help and welcome others.
Thank you to all those who serve including their families. Lest we forget.
Donations towards the third phase of this park development can be made through the Town of Gander. More information can be found here.
