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.
