It's been a busy and troublesome year for borders, barriers and fences of all kinds. Every time I watch the news or turn on my radio I hear about borders. People trying to get across borders. People trying to stop them. People trying to help them. People wanting to build a wall across all of Mexico. People rolling out that razor wire like Christmas lights.

If we had a nickel for every mile of barbed wire, well we'd have a pretty fair boat-load of nickels.

I've seen way too many photos of children looking through razor wire.

We have kids living on the wrong side of barriers in every city and town.

Barriers like being too tired and hungry to go to school. Changing schools, moving to a new town where you...

GCHS-full-captionWhy were the Polish Soldiers in Owen Sound in 1941–1942? In 1939, the Nazis overran Poland on three sides. Poland, the first nation invaded in WWII, was not prepared to resist a German Army three times its size. On the 27th day of the war, out of ammunition, their country totally bombed and burned, and no water for five days, Poland surrendered; yet their men and women continued to resist. Unconquered in spirit, many men made their way to France where a Polish Army was reformed. Within a few months, 92,000 men fought in the Battle of France, continuing for seven days after the collapse of France. Some of these brave men then fought in the Battle of Narvik, until backed up in the fjords of Norway. General Sikorski flew to London and said to Churchill, "If you will come and get my men, we will fight for you." Rescued, an independent army was formed in Scotland. In 1941, a Recruiting...
