I live on the border with Canada and regularly tune in to their national news report at 10 PM (or the website cbc.ca). All my life they've been our true friends, always there when we have needed them.

The day their fighter planes returned from the first Gulf War, we drove the hour north to Ottawa and sat on a snowy park bench to watch the victory flyover of Parliament--the last time that had happened had been after WWII.

The funerals of Canadian troops who lost their lives in Afghanistan are broadcast on TV with full military honors and dignity. Their nation mourns each and every one of them.

Our country must be grateful for such courageous and willing help.
