Feisty Friday – The 10th Day of Remembrance

Today is about a wartime hero and I want to give a shout out to Laura Secord. Not the chocolate company. Well, it was kind of named in honour of her about a hundred years after she did something really important. What was that? She took a long walk.

So, her husband was a soldier and he got injured. She fed a bunch of US soldiers because they made her. She overheard them talking of their military plans to crush the Brits. Because her husband was too injured, she took it upon herself to travel through Iroquois country and get a message to Lieutenant FitzGibbon.

Because of her, Canada didn’t become part of the United States. Laura Secord is why we don’t have the orange man in charge of our country today!

Thanks again Mrs. Laura Ingersoll Secord.

Guid cheerio the nou,
