Veteran's Day/Rememberance Day

I'm a little sad thinking about all of the soldiers that have given their lives to help protect us, but also grateful. The Mom-Lady-Person said that sometimes in the excitement of having a day off of work, some people forget what this day is really about. We will be taking a moment to remember today.


Our Canadian friends also observe Rememberance Day today. They also honor their soldiers. In honor of them:

Very nice post. I'm thinking of our veterans today and especially thinking of my Dad. He was a veteran of two wars.

Thank you to all veterans and those who are currently protecting our country.
