For Thee, I will Stand on Guard

  I drove past the cenotaph in downtown Guelph tonight.  I have driven by this corner thousands of times over the last 25 years.  To and from work.   This is the first time I have really taken note of it.  It was brilliant.  Four soldiers stood at four corners under glowing spot lights.  Young, strong and still, their heads bowed, their hands folded on top of long, straight guns.  No motion.  Solemn,reverent and eternal.  Nameless figures.  Soldiers bound by courage and purpose.
A poignant vigil.

Strong, proud and free.

Thank you
