In Remembrance

One place I would like to visit is the Canadian Vimy Memorial in France. Now it will be just a little bit harder to get there. The site is some distance from the nearest train station but an old man would wait at the station everyday, ready to take any visitors to the site in his personal car. Today I saw a report from the CBC that Georges Devloo has died.

He was not paid to drive people to the Memorial site nor did he ask anything from the visitors. He was simply a man who remember what it cost to get we are today and was giving a little bit back. This is type of selfless dedication is very rare in younger generations. I wonder if anyone else will step forward to take Mr. Devloo's place.
