Lest We Forget

For Canadians, today is Remembrance Day. It's a day we all reflect on not only the soldiers who have fought and died for us in various wars throughout history and today, but we also think about the survivors, the families, and the immense greatness that is the sacrifice they have all made.

Today, I'm going to forgo the traditional Friday Funnies. Instead, I'm going to ask you to take a minute, no matter where you're from, and think about these brave men and women and their brave families. Remember those who have been lost. Pray for those still fighting. And acknowledge that they are a big reason why we even have the freedom to laugh and smile every day, not just Friday.

If you're Canadian and want to participate in a Remembrance Day service in your area, check out this link. Because it is also Veteran's Week there may also be some events for you to check out over the weekend as well.

I'll leave you with one of the most popular poems commemorating this day:
