Wear your poppies with pride, and remember this: A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "Canada" for an amount of "up to and including my life."
Canada can be substituted with whichever respected country you are from. =)
What are you all doing from Remembrance Day? (In the states it's Veterans Day, not sure about other countries.)
We are going to the ceremonies at our kids school and the big one at CUC here. Our oldest is a part of these ceremonies here as she is a Navy cadet. We're proud of our children, I can't wait to see her out there honoring the veterans in uniform. They've already gone to the veterans hall last week and paid their respects personally to them. Our poppies have been on our jackets since Halloween.
