On my way home last night, I spotted a new "temporary structure" over on Trafalgar Square. This morning, I swung by to have a closer look, as it bore the word "Vigil". It looks like an obelisk and has text in English and French. From last night until 11/11, at sunset, the names of all those Canadians who gave their lives in WW1 will be projected from the "obelisk" onto the wall of the adjacent High Commission. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/LAC.20081105.VIGIL05/TPStory/Entertainment The words express the hope that any Brits who lost members of their families who served with the Canadians in WW1 will go to this website http://www.1914-1918.ca/ where they can look for the names and see when they are to be beamed onto the wall. Well done to Canada for showing the way. With this and their "Memorial Cross" http://www.vac-acc.gc.ca/remembers/sub.cfm?source=collections/cmdp/mainmenu/group09 they show the rest of us how to recognise sacrifice.
