Standing in the wind and cold through many past Remembrance Day events has felt like an appropriate discomfort to face to acknowledge the many trials that former and current members of our Armed Forces have undergone on our behalf. Whether you attend a Remembrance Day service or take a quiet moment by yourself on November 11th, it’s important to step back and appreciate our blessings as we mark the centenary of the end of the “Great” War. Wear your poppy with pride. If it hasn’t fallen off your jacket when the day has come and gone, instead of tossing it or saving it for next year, drop by the Family Centre and add it to their installation where it will inspire a new generation of Canadians to appreciate how lucky we are to live in this great nation.
