The National War Memorial in Ottawa, Canada is also known as The Response. It was originally designed and constructed in memory of Canadians who served in the First World War. It has since been adapted to honor those serving in subsequent conflicts. The surmounting sculptures symbolize spirits of peace and liberty. Earlier today, Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, standing guard at the memorial was shot and killed. The attacker was killed when he continued by shooting his way into the nearby Parliament building.
