November 11th - Did you remember

The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

Did you remember?

Did you take a minute or even just a moment to reflect on all the Canadians who have gone to war and didn't come home?

Did you think of the children who've waited for a mother or father, a brother or sister, to return home, who are still waiting?

Did you take time to reflect and possibly offer up a prayer or an affirmation that perhaps one day human kind will find ways other than armed conflict to resolve their most serious differences?

Remembrance day isn't a day to glorify war, its a day to reflect, to honour sacrifice, and to hope that someday all nations will join together and put an end to war.

I remember, I won't stop.  I will pray, and I won't stop.
