LEST WE FORGET

The Debt Unpayable

What have I given,
Bold sailor on the sea?
In earth or heaven,
That you should die for me?
What can I give,
O soldier, leal and brave,
Long as I live,
To pay the life you gave?
What tithe or part
Can I return to thee,
O stricken heart,
That thou shouldst break for me?
The wind of Death
For you has slain life's flowers,
It withereth
(God grant) all weeds in ours.

- F.W. Bourdillon

Remembrance Day Message from Her Excellency the Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson

The Royal Canadian Legion

Canadian War Museum

McGill Students are reminded that there will be a Remembrance Day ceremony on campus today. The ceremony will begin at 10:40 at the Roddick Gates and conclude shortly after 11:00 at the grave of James McGill. Professors have been encouraged to release classes for this event.

At the very least ensure that everyone observes the two minutes of silence at 11:00 a.m.

Honour the memory of all those who served and died.
Remember their struggle in the defence of freedom.
