On rememberance day, one Canadian MP remembers it is actually about peace

... We remember the overwhelming, countless loss of civilians who didn’t choose to die. We remember how easy it is to begin a war but not to end it. There is no such thing as a short war–the effects of violence remain long after the last shot is fired. We remember the sacrifice of those who work for peace and to end violence. We remember that violence does not happen just between nations but contaminates our entire society and our way of thinking. On November 11th we remember, with gratitude. On November 11th, we remember and pray that war will be no more.

Elizabeth May, Green Party of Canada
