A Time To Remember.

Today is Remembrance Day here in Canada.  A day to remember those men and women who fought and died that we might enjoy the freedom we have today.  It began the 11th hour, the 11th day, the 11th month when World War I ended.  Originally called Armistice Day, it was changed to Remembrance Day in 1931.  The poppy has become a symbol of that remembrance that we wear before and up to Remembrance Day.  The poppy pictured above came from a seed of a poppy from Flander’s Fields.  My dad served in the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II.  We should never forget those who fought for our freedom, and those who still serve to keep our freedom.

  1. Inspiring tribute! Thanks for sharing Steve. Many of my extended family have served as well. My Mom and I were comparing notes about this earlier today when I called her. Whrn she was four years old, her father served in the army in WWII for three years.
