Remembrance Day


A simple question. How grateful would you be to someone that literally gave their life to save yours. Or who gave their own life to greatly improve yours? For me, I would be for ever grateful to the point of almost feeling indebted to that person for the rest of my life.
Fact of the matter is we all owe that debt of gratitude to hundreds of thousands if not millions that made that ultimate sacrifice to allow us to live the lives we do today.
Here in Canada it is Remembrance Day. One day of the year set aside to acknowledge and remember those that made that sacrifice for all of us. Two minutes of silence, inner reflection is asked. Need I really say more?

    Hi Bill .. no you don’t need to say more … I have spread the word, as I’ve done in two previous years, on my blog – it’s so important to remember all our service men and women and associated organisations, who all pull together to keep us free.

    If someone saved my life .. I’d be totally indebted – couldn’t agree more … Hilary

    I was lucky enough to do the 2 minute silence with our local fire service, today. It was really poignant.

    Cheers

    We did our 2 minutes of silence in their honour, in thanks and gratitude.
    And no, really…no more needed to be said.
