Remembrance Day

“When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.”
- Jimi Hendrix -

Today we honour the men and women who have sacrificed their lives for the freedom and safety of others.


They died
That we might live



Let us never forget.

  1. Our Veteran's Day is 11/11...tomorrow where you are. I love, love, love what they do, but I'm extremely grateful I've never had to serve. Because it's effing hard. The sacrifices so great. I'm humbled by their loyalty and excellence.

  3. "They died
    That we might live"------ Indeed!
    Sacrifice is not easy! Whatever be the cause, wherever is the location, gratitude is the only answer to their courage.

  10. Thank you, Martha. I was feeling guilty for not doing anything to honor our veterans, but then remembered that I made a donation of miscellaneous things to the Disabled Veteran's Association. It's minor, but nothing would be enough to honor our troops, past and present.

  12. What a powerful video, Martha! Seeing the word "Canada" or Canadian flags on the fighting men really hits home. Both of my parents were veterans, and I am so proud of them both. On the one hand, I'm relieved I never had to fight in battle, but on the other, I feel like I missed something so important. My first husband was in the 101st Airborne in the American Army. Some of them are now deployed in Africa to fight ebola. He would have been proud to serve there. Thanks for remembering Remembrance Day!

    1. There are so many amazing people that have served, and who are serving. I have a tremendous amount of respect for them, and I can certainly see why you are so proud of your parents. It takes courage and sacrifice; two things that not everyone can do.
