I sat down to write a post about Remembrance Day and realized that I couldn’t come up with any new words to say what I said last year so I am going to just repost what I said last year.
One of the hardest things about being away for the winter is not being home for Remembrance Day and Christmas. We are so proud of our youngest son for serving his country and also for the rest of our family for always giving Remembrance Day the respect it deserves and attending local services.
Whether you are Canadian or American I hope that you will spend some time today remembering what this holiday is all about, rather than giving into the retailors push to start your Christmas shopping early.
However you choose to remember our Veterans take some time today to honor their courage, service and sacrifices that have kept us strong, proud and free.
To all the men and women who put themselves in harm’s way to protect our freedom, many making the ultimate sacrifice. Lest we forget.
Our youngest son has served two tours in Afghanistan and lost friends during those tours. Our hearts go out to their families particularly at this time of year. You are always in our thoughts and prayers.
Some people wonder …
if they have made a difference in the lives of others…. A soldier never has to!
