I get very emotional on Remembrance Day. I think of the soldiers past and present who fight in terrible wars, who go into harm’s way in the name of peace and I don’t want us to ever forget the sacrifices that they make. I don’t want this to just be a “day off” for my kids. I want them to understand what it’s all about.
Today at 11 the kids and I will watch this video. And I’ll try to explain what it all means. And I’ll take flowers to my friend who’s brother died in Iraq.
