Take Time to Remember

This past week in Canada has been Remembrance Week.


Growing up Remembrance Day was always focused on the Veterans of World Wars I & II.  In the last few years Canada saw the death of our last surviving World War I Vet.  I know within my life we'll also see the last surviving World War II Vet.

In the last few years the Canadian Government has moved its focus way just these two wars to any wars, conflicts, and operations Canadian Soldiers have served in to our current members of the Armed Forces.

I am grateful for the men and women who serve this country so well.  Who protect us and maintain our reputation as the World's Peacekeepers.

I remember, do you?

Absolutely .....I kept my children home every year so they could go to the ceremonies in Ottawa....this year my son will march along with my beloved dad in Carleton Place...and we will be with my little granddaughters...rain or shine, as we stand with our vets young and old at the cenotaph. Thank you for your beautiful post and photo Dani.....
