Today, on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we remember them. At the eleventh hour, we observe a moment of silence. We reflect, we give thanks for the men and women who fought for our freedom, and we honour those are are still fighting today.
On Sunday, I attended our local Royal Canadian Legion branch’s Remembrance Day service with my nephew Caden. The Highland Mist Pipe Band, Legion dignitaries, war veterans and soldiers marched to the Cenotaph, where we sang O Canada and heard The Last Post played, prayers were offered, and many wreaths were laid in memory of our community’s war veterans and heroes.
These are some of the pictures I took that day:
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
