Remembrance Day


On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month,
Canadians are asked to pause and remember
the thousands of men and women who sacrificed their lives
fighting for freedom and democracy during the First World War,
the Second World War, the Korean War, the Afghanistan conflict
and during peacekeeping missions.


Today is Remembrance Day.
The day we remember all the brave people who fought
and are fighting for our freedoms.
Ceremonies are held across the country.

In Flander's Fields...


To our Veterans... a BIG THANK YOU !!!

Ah, we just saw this. We are going to add your bloggie (along with House Panthers) to our blog roll so we don't miss another one.

Our Grandfather fought in WWI also. On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month we always face the east to honor him and the other brave souls.
