Silver Cross Mother is the name given to mothers who have lost a son or daughter in the Canadian Forces. As one of the women said during her interview, “No one wants to become a Silver Cross Mother, but once you are one, you are extremely proud.”
This video was made for a fundraising gala for The Honour House, a charity that helps the families of Canadian Forces personnel and first responders.
Songwriter Joshua Hyslop played live at the gala as well as participated in this film. His song “Do Not Let Me Go” is the soundtrack.
