2 Minutes

Today's post isn't about woodworking. Today is the day we set aside 2 minutes to remember our vets and our fallen brethren. I'd like to share something a little more that many have seen, but many more will not. A few years ago, my wife and I were on vacation and driving around the Cabot trail on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia. We came upon a viewpoint that was breath taking.
There was a memorial stone. Only about 3' high with a bronze plaque on it. The inscription read:

They will never know the beauty of this place, 
see the seasons change, 
enjoy nature's chorus . 
All we enjoy we owe to them. 
Men and Women who lie buried in the earth of foreign lands and in the seven seas.
Dedicated to the memory of Canadians who died overseas in the service of their country 
and so preserved our Heritage.
As you were.
