Thought about writing something new with regards to Remembrance day tomorrow, but when I re-read what I wrote last year, I wouldn’t change a thing. The choice to even read this is because of EVERY soldier we stop to remember tomorrow and why that red poppy is pinned to our lapels. Lest we forget and may God bless everybody!
With Remembrance day coming
I wanted to do something a bit different.
Year after year,
we make it a priority
to attach that poppy
to the lapel of our coats.
there is an actual effort
to watch or attend
official ceremonies for those we lost
and who still stand before us.
Here is the thing…
How many of you can actually
tell anyone of the younger generation
about what makes it such a special day
or why it is so important?
If they were to ask you simple questions
would you be able to answer them?
So I did a little research
only because it has been forever since
I was in school
and to be honest
I had completely forgotten
what I had already learned as a kid.
Of course this is from a Canadian perspective,
but history is history
and it never hurts to learn.
