Remember to lay down your NaNoWriMo work, your TV remote, your rake, or your cellphones. Take a moment from your day –to remember those who gave their lives, so that we would have the freedom to do the things we will be doing on November 11.
As war and armed conflict rage around the globe, we who live in relatively peaceful countries, have a lot to remember –and a lot to be thankful for.
Between November 9 and November 11, thoughts of the many brave and selfless souls, who have given life and limb for our freedom, will grace our consciousness, and at eleven a.m. on Tuesday, November 11—the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month”, we will close our eyes, in unison, and remember why it is, that we have the freedom to do so.
In memory of Corporal Nathan Cirillo, Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent –and the countless other brave men and woman who have given the ultimate sacrifice.
