God keep our land glorious and free...

God keep our land glorious and free…

By now we’ve all heard the tragic story of the shooting of Corporal Nathan Cirillo.

Most news coverage has focused on the shooter.

How was it possible that he made it into the Hall of Honour? Who was he? Was he Canadian? How is it that authorities were caught off guard?

But what of the stories of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo?  Who was he? And what of the folks who tried to save his life?

That’s why I was particularly moved by Rex Murphy’s account (below).

Listen as he describes the events immediately after the shooting of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and then goes on to honour the actions of The Sergeant of Arms, Kevin Vickers.

Thank you Rex Murphy for changing the focus of this story

Thank you for your service Cpl. Nathan Cirillo.

May you rest in peace.


May we who remain, long for, and work toward peace.
