I come from several hundred years of Mennonite tradition as a heritage. In the years of migratory history, our basic tenets were:
- Exemption from military service
- Freedom to have our own schools
While I’m grateful and proud of our history of peace, I am even more grateful to the veterans and their families that have made our peace and prosperity possible. Without the bravery of such willing soldiers, we would not have the freedom today to pursue our faith, family & fiscal responsibilities like we are today. Today we honour the brave and the fallen especially for what they’ve done.
