Remembering a hero

Not since the passing of Billy Bishop in 1956 has such a funeral been held. The details of Smokey Smith's service in Vancouver was announced today, and it looks like it's going to be everything it should be.

Bound By Gravity has a posted the transcript of Sgt. Smith's last interview here.

In an age when many take Canadian freedom for granted and forget what it took to become so complacent, we truly need to remember that we didn't get here by quietly sitting on the sidelines. There was a time when the Canadian military was one of the best in the world, and honoured the world over.

Thank you, Sgt. Smith for being an amazing Canadian hero.

Vancouver, British Columbia
A patriotic Canadian full of visions of a better Canada, random thoughts and a lot of hot air. Who am I? A struggling writer and photographer, who looks forward to a better Canada. I read. A lot. I learn. A lot. I push myself. A lot. The world is a small place, and getting smaller every day. I'm proud to have friends in every corner of the earth, and abide by the old adage that there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet.
