    Another November vet tribute.

    Countries honor fallen veterans in different ways. In Canada this is what we do. It is called the "Highway of Heroes" and the cool part is the movement is 100% grass-roots. No one told people to do this. They just do it on their own:

    The bodies of fallen soldiers arrive at a military base in Trenton, ON. They are then transported in hearses about 100 miles to a morgue in Toronto. The families go along in limousines and there is a police escort. They are given a full police escort so that they are the only ones on the highway at that time.The section of highway in Toronto is one of the busiest in the world.

    People stand along the highway and on overpasses. Many holding flags while others hold signs of support to the families of the fallen soldiers. Uniform police and fire fighters join in. No matter how hot (It does get hot here sometimes), cold, wet or windy it is.

    This did not start as an organized event. No one suggested they do it. No politician started it. People just did it. And the response has been so big the Ontario government renamed that stretch of highway the Highway of Heroes. I have been there and it is a moving experience.
