Give Peace a Chance

Over the past day or so, you may have seen a multitude of images of Canada’s Parliament Buildings, and so tonight I’m taking you inside Parliament’s Peace Tower and its Memorial Chamber, which is dedicated to people whose lives ended while in the service of this country.

Originally erected as a memorial to those lost to what was then known as the Great War, the Peace Tower houses Books of Remembrance, one of which you’ll see above.  A century later, I’m writing with sorrow for the loss of lives yesterday, and compassion for the people of Ottawa and beyond. You might wish to have a look at how Bruce MacKinnon has shared his perspective.
