A Time To Remember.

Good morning everyone!  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. 

My Dad, 1941 at age 19.

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.  

Great uncle from WWI

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. He joined the Air Force in 1941 when he was 19. Other relatives also served in both World War I and World War II. Not all came back.  We should never forget those who fought for our freedom, and those who still serve to keep our freedom.

Thank you for joining me in this very short tribute for the very brave men and women who served and are serving, for our freedom. These men and women who served in the last World Wars also came back and helped rebuild our nation for us.

  1. The US also celebrates this day calling it Veteran’s Day to remember all the soldiers who have given their energy and time, and many, their lives so that we could enjoy the freedoms of our country. The socialism that is becoming popular among young people will destroy that for which they fought. Canada and US share a common interest in preserving our republics.

    • Yes, I agree totally. Too many young people are getting caught up with socialism thinking it is what is needed for peace and equality. Such a shame. Here it is taught in our schools as the best system for peace. We are indeed forgetting. There are so many young people that think Remembrance Day is something from the past and should be banned because it promotes war. So sad. Have a great day C.A. !πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜Ίβ›„β„οΈβ˜•β˜•
