Remembrance day

Today we remember those who fought for us, those who brought peace to the world.


I don't know who wrote this quote. "I wear a poppy on my coat, as red as it can be. I wear it to remember those who fought for me." 

In October, an attack on Parliament hill took the life of Nathan Cirrillo. As a soldier of honor, his rifle was not loaded. He was shot from behind.

We remember those who were lost.
They loved and were loved.
They saved us.
They handed us the torch.
We keep it burning.
Never let the torch blow out.


Remember, please.

  3. Meowmy was reading about that in the Globe and Mail. She peruses that every day to keeo in touch with the news from ' The Great White North'.

    So very sad indeed. What is with people.

    Thanks to all service men and women.

    Meowmy got a poppy while she was in Canada a few days ago.

  4. Whoa! He must have been a bruv. Gramps was in WWII and always bought a poppy. In the U.S., once our soldiers come home, they’re not treated like heroes. Lots live in homeless shelters and govt run buildings with rats, roaches and bedbugs. We should do better.
