Remembrance Weekend Post

I'm not sure how recognized Remembrance day is in the rest of the world but in Canada we kind of make a big deal out of it. Days off, school assemblies, wearing poppies, etc.. And I think there should be some attention paid to it, we're recognizing the sacrifices of the people who have fought in wars.

So take a minute or two on Sunday if you can. A moment of silence out of respect for these people. If you want to be really on top of things, try and do it at 11AM.

Short post today. I'll see you guys on Tuesday.

  2. I had my two minutes of silence at work this morning, and I'm going to put a poem up on one of my blogs later for it too. We should never forget.

  5. It's a big deal over here too with televised silences and programming dedicated to it on television and everyone wears a poppy. It's nice to see how big a deal it is everywhere else too.

  7. Go Canada! The US makes a big deal of it in theory, but no one gets out of school or work. Lame!

  8. Lest we forget.

    Millions of soldiers have made the ultimate sacrifice for something they believe in. Infinite respect for those men and women.

  9. Here in Hong Kong, the most we do is pin a poppy to our shirt, which even then is extremely rare. I think none of us here really care.

  15. In America we all it Veteran's Day. When Canada invades us and changes our name to Amerida we will change it to "Rememberance Day."
