Unsung Heroes

Last night we went to a beautiful tribute to veterans who had been unrecognized by the Canadian Government: Aboriginals, African Nova Scotians, Acadians, Canadian Merchant Marines. It was called Unsung Heroes.
I had no idea what I was in for, but it was very beautiful.   Music, traditional dances and story telling at the beautiful St. John's Anglican Church.

The highlight for me was when an ancient aboriginal man who had served in the second world war stepped up to the microphone, with the help of two people, and recited a traditional prayer.
 I'm going to have to paraphrase what he said.: We ask the creator to give us strength to enjoy each day and to always be grateful. 

I think that's the only prayer I will ever need.
