We say we are thankful for what the Service men and women have done for us. But do any of us really have a true appreciation of what we are thankful for? I can't speak for anyone else, of course, but I have no true grasp of the realities of war. I can't even imagine it, not on any level.
Maybe that's why I'm really saying thank you. I'm not thankful because of the freedom that has been provided to me. I'm not thankful because I'm a Canadian and not some goose-stepping baby killer.
And for that I am thankful.
For that must be what war is. The scariest, most unimaginable horror.
