Saturday Snapshot

Saturday Snapshots is hosted by West Metro Mommy

October 2014 - Toronto ON

I'm paying tribute to some heroes. Thank goodness for heroes as we end a horrible week in history here in Canada.

You can watch the moving video of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo being brought home yesterday.

A touching editorial cartoon from Bruce MacKinnon was published this week in the Chronicle Herald. Rest in peace Cpl. Nathan Cirillo. 

I went to Queen's Park this week and took this photo of the flags at half mast outside the Ontario Legislature.

I went in search of the police and firefighters' memorials.


  1. You chose the right pics for the occasion, Jackie.

    I've followed Bruce's work for a number of years. I think it's the best work he's ever done, and he's so good at it.

  2. The sculptures are amazing! Thanks for sharing them with us.
