What is Remembrance Day to you?
According to Wikipedia, The federal department of Veterans Affairs Canada states that the date is of "remembrance for the men and women who have served, and continue to serve our country during times of war, conflict and peace"; specifically, the First and Second World Wars, the Korean War, and all conflicts since then in which members of the Canadian Forces have participated.
Take a few moments on Tuesday to honour everyone who has stood up for Canada, allowing us to have the freedoms and rights that a lot of people around the world are not privilege to have. Take the time to write someone you know a hand written note, simply stating that they are appreciated and recognized for a service that not too many of us would undertake. Think of a family member or friend who has served for our country, and if you don’t have anyone is specific, write a generic note that you could drop off at your local legion, ask a staff member to give it to the next veteran that come in. A small gesture of recognition will go a long way.
So on November 11, take a little time out of your day to appreciate the people who have helped shape our country. Thank you Veterans!
