Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day ZgonToday is Remembrance Day, at least it is in Canada, where I and everyone else would be proudly wearing a poppy in memory of those who served our country. Now that most of the WWII generation are passing, it's sometimes too easy to forget what kinds of different lives we do today compared to say, my grandfather's generation. Sometimes I wonder about the moral courage of my generation (myself included), that we're prepared to largely ignore the erosion of democracy and liberal human rights perpretrated in the name of a misguided and illegal war so long as we continue our right to rip CDs to our iPods unhindered. So at least for today, I just wanted to say that I remember.
