this is from our Memorial Service this morning in Ottawa.
"At a time like this, words fail us. We reel before the blunt and terrible reality of the evil we have just witnessed," Prime Minister Jean Chrétien told the crowd.
"We cannot stop the tears of grief. We cannot bring back lost wives and husbands, sons and daughters, American citizens, Canadian citizens, citizens from all over the world. We cannot restore futures that have been cut terribly short."
"During dark times like this, Canadians feel not only like neighbours, but like family."
"And, even as we grieve our own losses, the message we send to the American people is equally clear. Do not despair. You are not alone. We are with you. The whole world is with you."
