Three years after Parliament Hill attacks, terror threat persists

Sunday marks the three-year anniversary of the horrific terrorist attack on Parliament Hill in Ottawa.

On Oct. 22, 2014, Cpl. Nathan Cirillo was standing ceremonially on guard at the National War Memorial near Parliament Hill when he was shot in the back by a terrorist.

The 24-year-old Canadian soldier and father of a young son died of his injuries, and the terrorist continued his deadly raid.

    I visited Nathan Cirillos grave today. He’s in the same veterans cemetery as my father. The Argyls gave him a beautiful marker and it appears many people have visited his grave. I can’t help wonder if you are going to give a kid a rifle to defend the country you should give him some bullets as well.

    I visited Nathan Cirillo’s grave today. He’s in the same veterans cemetery as my dad. He’s is missed by a lot of people judging by his marker.

    They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.
