Remembrance Day 2015

As I do each year, I’ve once again chosen a video message for Remembrance Day 2015.    Remembering those who fought for our freedom  a century ago feels more important as the years go by,  and as our society goes further down the dumper.

Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth of Nations member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty.  ~ Wikipedia

The videos is only 1:30. Please find a quiet time to watch it.  And please consider joining me for a moment of silence at the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

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.
