Today, on November 11th, at the 11th hour we remember all those who have died during the last wars.
I have been fortunate enough to not have any of my relatives fight in any of the wars. My mother does remember when she was a little girl in Italy when the Germans invaded Italy and entered her village in Northern Italy. It is a time I never wish to happen to me and thank all the soldiers who have fought to make sure it never does again.
Here in British Columbia, as well as Alberta, we have the day off work as it is a statutory holiday. It does have a bitter sweet tone to it and not really a day for celebration.
I hope everyone had a moment of silence and remembered all the fallen.
