Remembrance Day Musings
Lest we forget. As the years go by, I find myself understanding the importance of Remembrance Day more and more. When I was young, selfish and foolish, it was just an excuse for a day off...but as I get older and older I become more and more thankful for the sacrifices that people made so that we can enjoy the freedoms that we have today. I can't say enough how thankful and grateful I am for what I have...so I suppose a piece of why I feel compelled to pay my respects is that I can't even begin to comprehend what these people and their families went through. I can't imagine how hard it would be to see your son or husband go off to war, maybe never to come back. Or how scary it must have been to be on the front lines fighting. So for that reason I'm eternally grateful to our veterans and will never miss marking Remembrance Day.
