Lest We Forget - Canada Remembers

Andy | Monday, November 11, 2013 | Best Blogger Tips

This war memorial of a WWI soldier stands as reminder of those scarficed so much for us. World War One was believed by many to be “The War To End All Wars”. On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, Canadians will pause in memory of the thousands of men and women who sacrificed their lives in military service.

  10. This day has morphed in the U.S. into "Veteran's Day." At one time it was "Armistice Day," something more akin to the holiday you observe. Perhaps World War I became too remote to warrant remembrance? The more I learn of it the more I believe it deserves to not be forgotten, along, of course, with the many other wars and the service of so many.

  11. Oh yes Andy hubby and I wached the service. Loved how the old timer went to the school and spoke of the sadness being in the fields and the kids honoured that and one girl played taps for him. He wa slike 90 I think and he said this may be the last time for him to speak and it was an honour. Bless his heart. A real firm salute for him. It brought tears to my eyes.

    That was the best part. Teachers educating children about the Hero's. Great take Andy.
