A CANADIAN EXPAT'S EXPERIENCES AND OBSERVATIONS LIVING IN THE WINDY CITY!

Sunrise Lake Michigan November 11 2015 2

Today in the United States it is, “Veterans Day”; in Canada it is, “Remembrance Day”.  Although similar in sentiment, Veterans Day is defined as a day to honor those who have fought for the United States in all wars.  In Canada and other Commonwealth countries, Remembrance Day is to remember the soldiers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in duty to their country.  I feel the day is the same, no matter which side of the border we are standing.

I have a strong, personal connection with the Canadian Armed Forces.  I hope you will join me today in honoring our American, Canadian, and Commonwealth country veterans and those who have fallen with a moment of silence and reflection.  Today’s, “Wordless Wednesday” photo isn’t ‘wordless’; it is dedicated to our soldiers.  Oh, and grandpa, wherever you are:  thank you; we will always remember.

      Thank you, Amy! Their sacrifice certainly is enormous, isn’t it? I took this photo a few hours ago. It was fitting for today, I think. Cher xo
