Let us never forget...
What a lovely tribute. May we never forget.Mary
from a family of veterans, thank you for the tribute!
Very nice tribute.
Beautiful! May we never forget.
we are here to remember because they are not....
I didn't know it was on the same day as our Veterans day
Canada does such a wonderful job remembering fallen veterans.I cannot even remember the last time I could find a poppy here in the States to buy, to wear, to save.To those who fell.....May your souls fly.May we always remember.XXOO~~Anne
Nice tribute, Debra.BTW Adam, I may be wrong on this, but I believe it is the same day because it was originally intended to celebrate the end of WWI, which ended on November 11.
Happy Remembrance Day. Veterans Day is tomorrow for us. Every day should be Remembrance Day........ Lovely post.
excellent, thx deb!
Beautiful words, Debra. Thank you.
I shall never forget.
The end of WW1 is also a national holiday in Serbia which lost one third of all citizens in that war and every second male Serb died in it.
Thank you for remembering, Debra.
Hats off out of respect, Canadian friends.
Beautiful tribute. So is your Remembrance Day like our Memorial Day? We celebrate our fallen military in May on Memorial Day, and we celebrate all veterans, alive and deceased, on Veterans Day on November 11. (If it helps, @Anne Huskey-Lockard, I often see groups of vets and supporters selling the poppies at the mall and in front of stores. I'm always honored to buy my poppy.)
Beautiful tribute ;o)
Hi Rose -- Our Remembrance Day is more like your Memorial Day but with overtones of your Veterans Day as well. Remembrance Day's main purpose is to honour the war dead but gratitude is shown to living veterans too.
Thank you for a wonderful post, I love the poem. Kind of a melancholy day today.
Well said Debra.
Lest we forget.
My father fought in France and Germany in WWII, his brother the one I was named after was in Hawaii when they bombed Pearl Harbor(He was hiding under the kitchen table as bombs blew up all around him and got a bullet in his 'ass'.. my other 2 uncles served, cousins, my first husband, father in law, brother in law, and I am grateful every day for what they did for our country
