Yesterday I shared the names of the 158 Canadian Forces who sacrificed their lives during Canada's mission in Afghanistan.
Any long time reader of mine knows that the families of our fallen hold a very special place in my heart. Every single one of our Fallen Heroes is loved by family: wives, husbands, fathers, mothers, and the sons and daughters left behind. Rarely do we hear from them, but all day yesterday, in the midst of all the political 'analysis' of the mission, the children were much on my mind.
Today, I came across a video on CBC where children of our Fallen shared their thoughts. It IS a must watch - a reminder for those who may need it, of the high cost of Freedom.

Children of Canadian soldiers who died in Afghanistan talk about how the mission changed their lives forever.
ALWAYS remember and honour: The children also Serve - and Sacrifice.
