Looking Out The Window

Pittance of Time



As I look out my window today, the flag is fluttering in front of a partially blue sky and the mighty Gary Oak trees are shedding their golden leaves.  The Parks personnel are diligently blowing the leaves away from the Cenotaph and the military members are pacing off the positions where everyone will be tomorrow.

In one day the park will be full of poppies, wreaths and vets as we commemorate another Remembrance Day.  This year there will be fewer vets from the World Wars, fewer from Korea but more from our recent scrimmages.

As parents, it is our jobs to tell the story of those who served and how they fought for our freedoms and the freedoms of others.  Tell your children to talk to the veteran and find out their stories.

Well said, Grizz.  

While I do not wear a poppy for personal reasons, it does not mean I do not appreciate the sacrifices made by our men and women of the armed forces that gave and are wiling to give their lives for the freedoms we so enjoy today.  My father serviced in the military.  35 years. So I know about sacrifices they make.  While his was not as great a sacrifice those who have given their lives for our country, it is still a sacrifice regardless.  

Even though I do not attend the ceremonies in remembrance of their sacrifices, I still honor them all, current and past, with all my heart.  We need to thank each and every veteran and active member of the military for putting themselves, without question, between us and those that would destroy what we so cherish.  Our freedom.

To everyone I know and everyone I do not know that have served or are currently serving.....


Your sacrifice has not gone unnoticed.
