Remember

Remember those we lost but also remember those who returned and were forever changed.

Today I will let others speak for the importance of this day. I urge you to listen to this song and to watch the brief message from the singer at the end of the credits:

Canadian Remembrance Day Song.

And I’m purposely putting Bryan Adams in second spot after the soldier/singer above but it’s also a beautiful tribute should you have time:

Canadian Forces. Bryan Adams – Never Let Go

Beautiful music and a beautiful message. We often think of those who were lost during the wars…but there is no doubt those who returned were forever changed. My grandfather faced a different reception coming home to Canada in 1919..than his son, my uncle did, coming home after WWII.

What a beautiful tribute to those who do so much for us, Diane.
Thank you.

I was thinking the same thing. The pain of war doesn’t end when the fighting ceases.

Such a shame that so many young lives were lost and forever changed. But if those brave men and women hadn’t done what they did, we may not be where we are today. We owe them all of our thanks and gratitude.
