This past Wednesday a gunman shot Nathan Cirillo, the honour guard (unarmed) from behind at the National War Memorial in Ottawa before heading on to Parliament Hill.
Nathan Cirillo was, among other things, a father, a dog lover and a husband.
When I think of what his family must be going through, I hope, that one day, our world will not know violence like this. It hurts so much to think of that horrible, senseless act and it helps me to read some of my favourite quotes on peace from some amazing people.
I hope, one day, our world will be a peaceful place.
