Lest We Forget

by Lauren | Celiac Teen on November 11, 2008

Yes, It’s that time of year again.  The 11th Hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month.  We know it as Remembrance Day.  The poppies have been all over jackets and shirts, and even some on hats and binders and bags.  That little poppy, the one that everyone always loses, and each year, new ways to make them stay are invented.  You can put a tip of your eraser on the end, or tape it.  You can stick the pin part through the fabric of the poppy.  You can wedge it into your shirt/jacket/hat/binder/bag, or you can even bend the pin and hope that it doesn’t spin around.

  

But, however you get your poppy to stay, it’s important that you remember.  That we remember the Canadians that we’ve lost to war, and those that have returned home.  All of the different wars, and all of the loved ones that gave up their lives to that we could have our freedom.  So that we could live in peace.  As far as I know, currently Canadians aren’t fighting in any war.  Instead, we’re cleaning up the mess left by war by peacekeeping.  But just because it’s called peacekeeping doesn’t mean that every soldier returns home.  No, that is the sad part.
  
As far as I know, Canada has one of the best militaries in the world.  The only thing is that it’s small.  Very small.  Regardless, the training is much more thorough than in other places, and our soldiers are definitely world-class.  Anyways, I just want to say thanks to every Canadian man or woman that has given their life for our country.  I also want to thank every Canadian soldier that has risked their life for our country.
 
xoxo
Lauren
