Remembering Why We Embrace Remembrance Day

In high school, Remembrance Day was a pseudo holiday. We would go in the morning, then attend an assembly.  Usually we were done by noon and took the rest of the day off.  That freedom came at a dear cost.

As time goes on, you learn the true meaning of Remembrance Day-and all it stands for.

A fitting tribute to the men and woman who went before us; who proudly fought overseas, never to return.

A fitting tribute  to those who did return with lives and bodies forever altered.

A   fitting tribute to the families of the gallant loved ones  who served and perished; who served and returned.

A fitting tribute to those men and woman in our national, provincial, and local services who look out for and protect us.

A fitting day to attend a Remembrance Day Ceremony; to take  quiet time and reflect on their memory and our extreme  gratitude.

Lest we forget.
