Remembrance Day 2017 – Lest We Forget

For the first time in the history of my country, our despicable Prime Minister Trudeau will not be in the country to lay a wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier.

He may have forget but we will remember and we will NOT “take a knee.”

Please pause for a moment at 11:00 am this morning to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

 

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.

Remembrance Day 2014

As you may already know, I truly believe that without the heroic efforts of those who fought and continue to fight, both then and now, we would not have the freedom that exists today.

And I know that many of you out there honestly think we’ve always gone to war chasing “the boogie man”.

But on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, I’ll put my right hand over my heart and observe a moment of silence.  Because it’s Remembrance Day here in Canada.  And I believe it’s important.

Here is a video tribute to those Canadians who gave so selflessly of themselves.  Please take a few minutes to view it.

Thank you to Jonathan Wagner – WagnerMedia.ca for the beautiful piece.

 

And lastly, a small crowd spontaneously singing our National Anthem at the Canadian War Memorial where Cpl. Nathan Cirillo was fatally shot by a masked terrorist less than a month ago.

Remembrance Day 2010

Today is known as Remembrance Day here in Canada. It’s a day to remember those who fought for our freedom.

On the 11th hour of the 11th day or the 11th month we observe a moment of silence.

I have two videos for you this year. Both came to me from my good friend, ET.

The first one is an all-Canadian musical tribute to our soldiers past and present. Like me, you might not be a country music fan but I think you’ll still like this one. Available in high definition and with a wonderful audio track, it’s a lot more upbeat than the video I shared with you last year.

The second video is a beautiful Vimy Ridge tribute from a group of Canadian high school students. Vimy ridge was the site of a battle during WW1 where many Canadians lost their lives.

And please .. take a moment of silence at 11:00 this morning to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice, who fought to protect us or who continue to put themselves in harm’s way to preserve our freedom and the freedom of others.

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.
