Word Of The Day

Today in Canada was Remembrance Day, the day that we remember the end of the First World War and those who gave their lives in it.

As I kid, I didn't think much of its meaning, it was just another day off school. As an adult, while I am thankful to those serving in the military willing to put their bodies and minds at risk.

This morning I slept in because I could. And I reminded myself at 11:11 am of the importance of the day, and for the rest of the day as I worked I rememberded the sacrifice of the 9 million soldiers and the 7 million civilians who died in the conflict.

So as an adult, I have a better appreciation for November 11th. I don't know combat, I don't know how that affects soldiers. But I'm thankful that they're willing to serve.
