One hundred Canadian soldiers dead in Afghanistan

We knew for a long time this day would come.

I write elsewhere my thoughts on military involvement in Afghanistan and elsewhere, but I won't link it here. In these days when all such markers and even yellow ribbons are quickly spun into partisan messages, I want only to share my regret, and my sympathy for their families.

No matter which course this country chooses in future, their living will not have been in vain.
