Happy Remembrance Day

Today, on 11/11/11, we celebrate Remembrance Day. I remember Remembrance Days past as being filled with poems, songs and "lest we forget." I am proud that I am the granddaughter of a veteran, as well as a citizen of Canada, a free country. Today I think of those who had died in war, those who have served and lived, and those who continue to serve and fight for freedom. To you veterans and soldiers alike, I thank you.

Quote of the day: But the freedom that they fought for, and the country grand they wrought for, is their monument to-day, and for aye. - Thomas Dunn English
