This week a tragic event happened in Ottawa, Canada. Terror struck at the center of our capital bringing a grim reminder in what world we are living in. Ottawa is a stone throw from where I live, watching those dramatic images on television brought me a weird feeling. The danger that I used to happened elsewhere is now front and center in my backyard.
Saturday morning I wanted to pay tribute to this gentleman who was killed from behind and to reflect on what we’ve become. I took my camera and got to the Cenotaph downtown Ottawa to pause, reflect on this and bring back some photos. I have been to the Cenotaph many times in happier circumstances, this time it was more emotional. Although I did not know Corporal Nathan Cirillo, this tragedy touched the heart of many Canadians and I am one of them.
