Remembrance Day - We have forgotten

Today in Canada is Remembrance day. This day commemorate the sacrifices of members of the armed forces and of civilians in times of war, specifically since the First World War . It is observed on 11 November to recall the end of World War I on that date in 1918. It also Commemorates the men and women who bravely fought in World War II.

Now what did these brave men and women from different countries fight against? They fought against an evil ideology which threatened the destruction of civilization and existence itself. Despite the fact that we Won both world wars, the very ideology that we fought against, we have willingly accepted and enshrined as law in Canada and in many other countries.

In Canada, babies can be aborted right upto the ninth month (this was seen in NAZI Germany), using amniocentesis mothers can screen the unborn child and get rid of the child if it has even the smallest of defects. The elderly are hidden away in old age homes so that we do not have to put up with them and it is only a matter of time when we have laws providing euthanasia and assisted suicide in Canada. All these evil ideas were what those brave men and women died to protect their countries from. Yet we elect governments which support these very same evil ideas all under the name of 'Freedom of Choice'.

Yes, today we should stand siliently for 2 minutes to respect these men and women who died for us. And after that we should put onh our armour and fight the good fight against these evils. We need to fight against socialism so prevalent in our countries and against relativism as well. If we really want to show our respect for the veterans, it is time we adopted thier actions and stop doing lip service to thier sacrifices.

We need to stop voting for pro-choice politicans and municipal council members who want to promote abortions and such evil. We need to fight against our relatives who think that financial rescue matters and nationalized health care is more important that the life of the unborn. [Jesus said that we must not fear things that destroy the body (hunger, poverty etc) but rather fear those that destroy the soul (abortion, gay marriage etc) ]. Abortion and acts of violence against the unborn, the handicapped, and the elderly destroy the moral fabric of society and lead to the death and destrcution of society.

Statistic: in World war II the death toll was 48,231,700 and in World war I was 15,000,000. which totals 63,231,700 lives lost in war (civilin and military).

In USA alone there till 2008 there have been 50,212,754 abortions of innocent babies which is just 13 million less than those who died in both world wars. I am not counting in Canada, UK, Australia and other countries becasue it is obvisous that the number of abortions will exceed the number of people who died in both world wars.
