Remembrance day

Today is remembrance day, most people my age don't know exactly what it's about or even seem to care. Today is the day that people like you and me who sit in a relatively free place take a bit of time to appreciate the people that fought to keep it that way. If it was up to me, I'd also consider the civilians and "enemy" soldiers, many of them innocent as you or I.

Hear hear!

An aquaintance of mine told me the other day that she was stopped by an asian couple downtown and asked what the significance of the poppies were. They thought that the poppies symbolized Canada's support of the war in Iraq.
