Our editorial takes a break from the political arena to discuss the importance of remembrance. Murphy's Law gets on a train of thought with thoughts about getting on trains. We've got a very special Guysborough-focused Remembrance Day feature by author Bruce MacDonald as well as an additional feature on another author that Journal readers are likely familiar with – Jude Avery (a former contributor with his "A People of Perseverance: The story of the Tor Bay Acadians" column). Remember the past, live in the present and hope for the future ... with a little help from your Guysborough Journal.
