News - Afghanistan - 14 Jul 2011

Afghanistan: 14 Jul 2011
ANOTHER RED FRIDAY

Red Fridays represent a non-partisan public movement to offer support to our troops overseas. From what I know, the movement began on the East Coast of Canada, where the families of soldiers in Afghansitan began to wear read as a show of support. The idea seems to have blossomed in 2006, which was when my wife and I began to wear red every Friday, roughly 250 times by now.


Can we stop wearing red now that the troops are coming home? So far, apparently not. Some troops are being seconded to NATO and will remain in Afghanistan. Others are engaged in attacks on Libya. No matter how we feel about Canadian foreign policy, as long as our brave armed forces remain committed to the field of war, those of us who remain at home should continue to wear red in their honour.
