One of the things that we are constantly reminded of from travel, is how very lucky we are to enjoy the freedoms and safety that we take for granted as North Americans, and more specifically Canadians. Much of the reason that we, and many others in the World celebrate those freedoms is because of the brave men and women from around the World that fought to protect our freedoms in World War I and II.
It is so very important that we remember the sacrifice these women and men made for us, Lest We Forget. So that hopefully we never see another World War and so that we never face the horrors they faced for our freedom.
On this 11th day of the 11th month, we remember and celebrate those men and women for their sacrifice and those that continue to sacrifice for Peace around the World, commemorating the end of World War I. Whether taking a moment of silence at the 11th hour or quiet reflection throughout the day, this is a day to Slow Down, to Say Thank You, and to Remember, Lest We Forget. It is also a day to share with the younger generations the importance of Remembrance and those who sacrificed for so many future generations, Lest We Forget.
