A Day of Remembrance – Wednesday November 11th

Okay, it’s time to put away the stockings and heels for a moment and talk about something important.  Really important.

On Wednesday, 11/11 at 11 o’clock we, in Canada, like so many other places in the world, will observe a moment of silence in memory of those who gave up their lives in combat for our freedom.  In preparation for this event, me and most other Canadians have been wearing a poppy on our lapels. .. left side, over the heart.

The poppy is a symbol of remembrance in my country and many other allied countries who contributed troops to the war effort in World War 1.  Poppies grew in abundance in Flanders Fields, a battlefield-turned-burial ground that spanned an area from southern Belgium to north west France.

I ask you to please take a few minutes to watch the very poignant Canadian video below to honour those who made the ultimate sacrifice so bimbo’s like me can have the freedom to be who we are, regardless how controversial.

Please watch it …… for me. It’s important.
