Remembrance Day 2011

Remembrance Day is a day on which people and governments from many countries honour the sacrifice of men and women who gave their lives in the line of duty. A special day, November 11th, is observed since World War I.

In Canada, the Poppy flower has become a popular symbol in remembering this special day. It has its roots in the poem, In Flanders Fields. Poppies which grew all over the battlefields of Flander, their bright red colour representing the blood that was shed during the war.

Lest we forget, let's take the time to remember these fallen men and women. And more importantly, let's try and help veterans who are alive today and struggling to make ends meet. The Veteran's Site is one of the easiest ways I've found to support veterans just by the power of our clicks. Thanks for supporting veterans!
