One Reply to “In Memoriam: Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada.”

  1. I remember reading a poem in a book written by a former member of the Canadian Airborne Regiment. It sort of jumped to mind when I saw the above picture elsewhere on the ‘net….

    “If I no more should waken on this Earth,
    To greet the daily miracle of dawn
    I shall have known much of deepest worth,
    Then do not weep for me when I am gone.

    High service has been mine, and prayers, and dreaming,
    Of that new world which sacrifice should bring;
    Oh, I have soared to heights where stars are gleaming,
    And raced translucent clouds on silvered wing.

    I shall have conquered Earth’s confining sod,
    And willingly gone forth to walk with God.”

    That’s it.
    One thing: I am typing this out from memory, because I am unable to find the book itself – so if any of the words are incorrect, I respectfully ask for the benefit of the doubt.
    One other thing: when you next go to the local watering hole, please raise a glass to Corporal Cirillo, and let the Lord know that we are sending a good man back to him.
    Thank you.
