A Day of Remembrance

poppyOn the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, Canadians are asked to pause and remember the thousands of men and women who sacrificed their lives fighting for freedom and democracy during the First World War, the Second World War, the Korean War, the Afghanistan conflict and during peacekeeping missions.

I've scoured my site for relevant entries. Here are some you may want to revisit today.

Here are some entries about Alfred Finley, a veteran and familiar face in Bloor West Village for many years.

And to those who served, or are serving this great country right now, I have one word: Thanks.

My Dad was a veteran of the English Eighth Army. He survived Rommel in the desert and the Japanese in the jungle. He was one of the lucky few who came home.

He died of complications to prostate cancer in 1985.

I will never forget our brave veterans.

I was actually out eating at a diner. I was impressed with the owner walked out into the dining room and asked that we have a moment of silence. Pretty fucking classy.
