Remembrance Day 2010

You are likely fortunate enough to have a holiday on Thursday. Rather than post here any of the many words, phrases, pictures, songs, videos, stories, and reflections to be drawn upon, I will simply encourage you to be active in your Remembrance on the 11th.

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 in different communities across Canada (including many of the BC ones). I do know for a fact there are more. Every municipality and city in Metro Vancouver has at least one, if not more cenotaphs, and each one will be hosting a ceremony. A simple Google search with your town’s name and “Remembrance Day 2010″ will likely result in information about your local service. I will likely be attending the City of Vancouver’s Victory Square ceremony. If you are interested in joining me, you would be more than welcome – please let me know.

Canada has given over 100,000 of its sons and daughters in armed conflict, including 19 since Remembrance Day 2009, and  over 100 in the past decade. Please attend.
