Just a simple pic says more than words can ever say. The soldier killed in front of the War Memorial Now he's part of it. Said, painful but also powerful. May he rest in peace !!!


On Thursday, Canada’s Chronicle Herald in Halifax, Nova Scotia, published a political cartoon that’s being widely praised as “powerful” across the United States and Canada.

The cartoon, the work of Bruce MacKinnon, features the soldier slain during Wednesday’s terror attack in Ottawa (Cpl. Nathan Cirillo) being comforted by one of the military men from the war memorial where he was shot and seemingly being assimilated into the memorial:

Call the incident what you will, perceive the reasons for it happening how one wants.

The fact remains.

It was a cowardly despicable act.

RIP Cpl. N Cirillo

Sad day. Because of some coward(s).
To kill innocents has to be the lowest form of scum and cowardice known to men.


May you rest in peace Nathan Cirillo.

That soldier stood to honour the fallen.......Although I did not know him personnaly I will remembered him for some reason, among all those I actually knew and fell.

Must say that I am still a bit overwhelmed every time I think of him.

The OP's pic really is touching and then I clicked on your video and when I saw the young girl waving the flag in the hearse cortege, I just lost it. Cpl. Cirillo also had a young son.

Damn, how violence scars and destroys families and communities! We nevertheless carry on and try to find accommodation and mutual points which continue to allow us to live in relative peace. I wish we had no need for armed forces, but we do unfortunately.

We already won this battle. Their ideology is dead and they know it. The feelings they inspire in certain individuals are incompatible with life itself. What they do is exactly the opposite of what they're trying to achieve. Regardless who's puppets they are of what your feelings are about the whole thing, there is no denying that acts like that will unite us and will make us stronger and more compassionate towards each other and the men and women in uniform.
Cpl. Cirillo will always live within our hearts.
