No words can describe what I have been feeling since I read the news yesterday about the shooting of a Canadian soldier as he stood guard at the National War Memorial in Ottawa.
My heart goes out to his family and friends and also to the family and friends of the two soldiers who were victims of the hit and run terrorist attack a few days ago. As well as to everyone across Canada affected by these terrible events.
My husband was a member of the Canadian Armed Forces for 25 years. As an army wife, I always knew that when he deployed on UN peacemaking/peacekeeping missions that he may not return. His specialized trade in the army was also one that was not without its dangers. But never did I worry about something like this and I can only try to imagine what members of the military and their families are going through now and will go through in the days to come.
My prayers and thoughts will be with them.
