Many of the world’s problems seem so far away. We often forget just how fortunate we are to live in a country as great as Canada.
Yesterday we were reminded that extremism is not confined to any particular region. A soldier’s life was taken. A nation’s collective innocence was shaken. If it can happen over there, then it can happen over here. It has happened here.
Whatever the goal of yesterday’s attack was, it did not succeed. Canadians are not afraid. If anything this has only hardened our resolve. Evil exists in this world. We are stronger.
Rest in Peace, Cpl Cirillo. You will not be forgotten.
