Remembrance Day

Most if not everyone should be aware that tomorrow is November 11th, marking Remembrance Day.



This is a day, that everyone should take a moment and remember someone who has served, or is currently serving this country.  The men and woman of the armed forces who gave their lives so that we can enjoy what we have today.


You will see people selling poppies, or the poppies at local stores, even if you have one already it never hurts to throw your extra change into the bin.


This year, Remembrance day falls on Saturday, allowing everyone to either go to a local ceremony, or watch the one from Ottawa on TV.


This all being said, on November 11th, at 11am, we should all pause, no matter what you are doing, and 2 minutes of a silent tribute.  This is the least we can do.


We should also remember on not only November 11th, but other days of the year too.


If you have time, click the below link, it is the Veterans Affairs Canada site, with a lot of amazing information.  It is worth the time to browse it for sure.


In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
