Remembrance Day will always be important to me notably because of my father (and basically everyone else in his family who fought in WWII). It's beyond my comprehension how he was able to handle something like that, but I'll forever be impressed by it.
I was very close with my Uncle Fred (my dad's brother) before he passed away in 2009, so I think of him endearingly on this day as well.
There were ten years between the two of them, but it's uncanny how they resembled one another.
In any case, I hope you stop for a minute at 11am today. And I hope that you do each year, whether you're in school or at work or even at home. It seems important to never stop doing that.
