Today is Remembrance Day, the day we honour all of our fallen heroes for their bravery and resilience in fighting against totalitarian regimes. Their collective sacrifice for their countries and their families is not something common in many Western countries today. They saw the evil and they signed up to confront it — even if it meant losing their lives over it. Today, we don’t confront evil. We accommodate and relativize it away. A good segment of the wacky Left even goes so far as to blame the victim instead of the enemy in a wild death wish against western civilization.
We also remember the innocent lives that were snuffed out by cruel and malevolent forces. In many ways, the pro-life movement and its leaders are the new freedom fighters, fighting a silent holocaust, stretching over decades and costing, exponentially, many more lives.
Their time is coming too to sacrifice for the defenseless.
Tyranny does not always impose itself with conventional guns and bombs, and its opponents do not always wear helmets and boots.
