Tomorrow is Remembrance Day, a day of which we should all give our thanks to those who have fought for our freedom. Whether in the past or present, each and every soldier that has devoted their time to serve our country, we should always be thankful.

Please remember that it is because of the work that they do that we are able to live a life of such freedoms. Please remember that many of these soldiers did NOT come home. And please remember that we owe these veterans our utmost respect and honour.

Hold your head up high, and be proud to be a Canadian!

For me, I would personally like to take a moment to say THANK those soldiers that lost their lives, and to those that are still in the fight for freedom and peace.

I have many ancestors who served our country, many came home, and some did not. Tomorrow I will remember each and every one of them, along with those soldiers that are of no relation to me at all!

In Flanders Fields
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

John McCrae (1872-1918)
