Today is a day that needs little help in terms of explanation or description. The sacrifice of Canadian troops, along with allied nations, fighting for the freedom of the world, is not hard to understand. What is difficult to grasp is the price paid. We cannot appreciate the living conditions of the trenches. Our minds cannot grasp the horrors that live in the minds of soldiers to this day. We must not forget the 60,000 plus Canadian soldiers of World War I and the 45,300 Canadian soldiers of World War II, who gave their lives in battle. We must not forget the world wide casualties of World War II where the war took 62.5 million (62,537,400) lives. The civilian count was catastrophic as the count of deaths numbered 75% more civilians than soldiers. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_II_casualties)
