Today is Remembrance Day.
Today we remember all the men and women
who served our country in the wars and peacekeeping
missions past and present.
The poppy is a symbol of Remembrance
and I am wearing mine.
Mom's Dad and Uncle served in WW2
When Mom was in Ottawa this summer,
she was able to visit the War Memorial.
This picture is from a calendar and shows
a Remembrance Day ceremony held in Ottawa.
Mom also got to see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
This is what the top looks like.
After the ceremony on Remembrance Day'
people leave their poppies on the tomb.
They also leave flowers,letters and pictures.
Purrs to all who served and continue to serve.
