The older I get, the more emotional I am on Remembrance Day. I think it’s because I have children, and I imagine how all the mothers and fathers have suffered throughout history watching their beloved children go to war. Such a huge sacrifice for our peaceful lives, which should never be forgotten.
I also get emotional whenever I see the Canadian flag, because I’m so grateful for what it represents.
I appreciate my kids, who came with me and suffered through the embarrassment of a mother with a camera on a really cold day!
