It’s Remembrance Day Shoko. A day to honour not only our vets but all vets, whether they be 4 legged and furry or 2 legged furless wonders. It doesn’t matter what side they fought for either, they are all veterans.
Mom and dad were at Omaha Beach with Phenny and his mom and dad from Easy Blog.
There are several beaches that saw Canadian and American Troops landing for battle along the Normandy coast. Imagine a teenager advancing from his boat to climb the hills in order to fight the enemy. Also, imagine another teenager, fighting for the other side, pointing weapons to kill the advancing troops. A death struggle, each fighting for their country and its ideals. WHAT A HORRIBLE WASTE! The Canadian Cemetery for those killed on Normandy’s Beaches during that fateful attack. Walking through the rows and rows of tombstones, the ages of the troops was astonishing. A few were in their 40’s but the majority were teenagers and young adults. There are no old men in this cemetery. The youth of the era willing to sacrifice everything for their country.
So on the 11th month, of the 11th day at the 11th hour, we will spend a minutes silence in respect for all Veterans service, not only Canada.
