You are likely fortunate enough to have a holiday on Wednesday. If you are able, please take the opportunity to attend a Remembrance Day Ceremony near you. They often last no more than an hour. Here is a partial list of some of the ceremonies, but I know for a fact there are many more. Every municipality and city in Metro Vancouver has at least one, if not two cenotaphs, and each one will be hosting a ceremony. A simple Google search with your town’s name and “Remembrance Day 2009” will likely result in information about your local service. If you are interested in joining me at one, please let me know.
Canada has given over 100,000 of its sons and daughters, including over 100 recently. Please attend.
