Mayor Ron Oszust’s Remembrance Day message

By Town of Golden Mayor Ron Oszust

November 11, 1918 – the day the “war to end all wars” was over – the world was relieved that the slaughter and suffering would end.

But it hasn’t.

War is defined as a state of armed conflict between different nations or states or groups within a nation or state.

Armed conflict – battle – combat – hostility – fighting – struggle – skirmish – campaign, we have many names for war today, but the bottom line is that people step up to defend their beliefs and many pay the ultimate price.

Countless sacrifices have been made by many brave men and women so that we can live in a country that allows us to express ourselves freely.

It is our responsibility to honour those who have sacrificed so much.

Thank you for our freedoms.

……Our freedom of speech.

……Our freedom of association.

……Our freedom of assembly.

……Our freedom of religion.

And our freedom of movement.

Lest we forget.
