Give them a minute.

On this 11/11/11, please take a moment at the 11th hour to remember all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice and all those who returned home.

Down Through the Years

Our lives were like a coin you toss
We have won, our friends have lost
And now they sleep beneath a cross
Down through the years.

Side by side they fought their way
That we may vote, our children play
And now they sleep until Judgment Day
Down through the years.

Many friends we knew have gone before
And now they’ve reached the distant shore
Their memory lives forever more
Down through the years.

~ Sam Arthur McArthur – Lincoln and Welland Regiment & Princess Louise Dragoon Guards
