The True Meaning of Remembrance Day

Do you ever find yourself consumed with the trivial and often too busy for the important?

I suffer from this affliction.

Join me this Remembrance Day and…
Consider taking time to thank those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for all of us.

Consider taking time to educate your children the meaning of Remembrance Day and how it came to be.

While you are doing so you will have to explain what our country fought for and how our country might look today if we had been unsuccessful.

Consider facilitating the passing down of stories about these sacrifices so that your children truly understand the meaning of LEST WE FORGET.

Your conversation might also include a discussion about the demands placed on servicepeople and their families and how it is important to take care of those who took care of us and that is shameful/unacceptable for our government to neglect them.

And Yes, it will be a day to give thanks for peace!

Wishing you a special day of REMBERING!

Remembrance Day

Is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty. Following a tradition inaugurated by King George V in 1919, the day is also marked by war remembrances in many non-Commonwealth countries. Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November in most countries to recall the end of hostilities of First World War on that date in 1918. Hostilities formally ended “at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month”, in accordance with the armistice signed by representatives of Germany and the Entente between 5:12 and 5:20 that morning. The First World War officially ended with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on 28 June 1919.
