We Remember, N’Oublions Pas

Learners and faculty honouring those who have fallen in service and the courage of those who continue to serve

Dr. Sudha Ayalasomayajula

“While attending grade and high school, I would sit in assembly hall for Remembrance Day Services and I remember feeling inspired. As a member of the Canadian Forces now, and knowing that I represent the future of the military, the day has even more significance for me. It solidifies for me that I am a Canadian and I’m here to stay and to serve my country.”

Dr. Edward Rommele

In sharing his thoughts about Remembrance Day, Dr. Rommele spoke about the tremendous losses he experienced during war. He recalled losing five commanding officers in a three-month period and says that he didn’t have time to grieve then and just would remind himself that there but for the grace of God go I. “We used to say he’s gone for a beer, when someone passed,” he said. On Remembrance Day he will be thinking about all the close friends who he has lost and who died fighting for their country.

Dr. Shane Smith

“Remembrance Day is a time to think about the past soldiers who served before me during the First and Second World War and in Korea. It is a time I think about my friends and fellow soldiers who served with me in Afghanistan and around the world. It is time to think about the soldiers who have died in the service of Canada, both past and present. Remembrance Day gives me an opportunity to reaffirm my own promise and oath to our country and our Queen.”
