I have a lump in my throat as I write this post. November 11 is Remembrance Day in the British Commonwealth, and Veteran’s Day in the United States. A day when we take time to reflect on the cost of our freedoms. I wrote a blog post two years ago that summarizes my feelings.
Rather than repeating these words, you may read it here if you would like: Emotional
I recently learned of a campaign called No Stone Left Alone. Canadian school children were encouraged, through this initiative, to visit cemeteries and pay respect to our fallen soldiers.
Almost 8,000 students in Canada visited 100 cemeteries this year, honouring more than 51,000Canadian Armed Forces members. https://www.nostoneleftalone.ca Our shop is closed on November 11th, out of respect for those who have died in military service, and for those who continue to put their lives at risk to serve our great country.
We will remember.
