Veterans Voices of Canada-Flags of Remembrance (Flags of Unity)
Greetings everyone! I
hope this letter finds you all well and in good spirits.
As we all know through
recent events across Canada as well as globally, we must modify
the way we live our daily lives, and the way we conduct our
businesses. This is an unfortunate but necessary reality.
Since 2005 we have been
travelling across Canada and on camera documenting the
historically important stories of our military heroes. To utilize
charitable status benefits to become more far reaching, we became
a non profit charity in 2008.
In 2014, our Veterans Voices
of Canada-Flags of Remembrance tribute began in memory of the
128,000 patriotic and selfless Canadians killed and missing in
action from the Boer War to current missions. It has proved to be
a needed tribute where we all honour our heroes, past and present.
In 2018, we decided after
much thought and through much feedback that our sponsored Plaques
of Honour (seen at the Opening Ceremonies and presented to those
who sponsor or honouree at a later date) should be also available
as a tribute to our frontline First Responders. As they put their
lives on the line and ensure we are taken care of each day as
well, how could we not? Therefore, we added this important aspect
of our tribute for those who wanted to honour their First
Responder hero. Their names will also be visible at each site
listing all those honoured this year.
In 2020 and because of the
Covid-19(Corona Virus)crisis, it has become more apparent than
ever that we have another group of warrior heroes that through
warring and peaceful times are again in the front lines, standing
up and putting themselves in harms way by fighting the kind of
fight we never thought we would have to.
Therefore, and for the year
2020, we will for this year be referring to our Flags of
Remembrance as,” Flags of Unity”. We will be offering the
opportunity for you to also give honour to your front-line medical
hero professional, who is there each day, guarding us against and
treating us for this terrible enemy of our national community
health and welfare.
Although our Opening and Closing Ceremony gatherings at each of
our tribute sites will not occur at this point September 12th of
this year because of the Pandemic guidelines, we feel it is
important to continue on with the raising of the 128 flags at that
time to be left up until November 12th,as we do each year. Giving
honour to those who are deserving through our Plaques of Honour is
important, and this will be something we all will need as a morale
booster as well as a builder of national pride and patriotic
Please be a part
and support our cross Canada annual tribute of honouring our true
heroes. Honour your past or present military or First Responder,
or your current front-line medical hero…the ones who are there now
to help us through this Pandemic crisis.
To say that this is an
important event this year is truly an understatement. We need to
show that we are a united country, willing to show appreciation
and respect to those who make a difference. This is our way of
doing that at Veterans Voices of Canada, while still trying to
remain an active, positive, productive entity nationally.

firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to sponsor your
military, Fist Responder or front-line medical personnel hero at
one of our cross Canada tribute sites communities.
