Remembrance Day

Even when we’re buried in our stories and other worlds, it’s important to pop our heads up and acknowledge the sacrifices made by soldiers around THIS world to fight for their countries, families, friends, and sometimes perfect strangers. Although war itself isn’t something that I support, I do, however, feel awed and grateful for the people who are willing to lay down their lives for others. Because sometimes there’s very little choice, and sometimes the war is about human rights and protecting those who can’t protect themselves. And it amazes me that there are people out there who are willing to leave their homes and fight to try and make the world better.

On this day, remember them. Not just the big wars, but the smaller conflicts and the humanitarian aid missions. And not just the soldiers, but their families who support them and helped them carry on, and those who lost them.

To the heroes:  Thank you.

  1. Je me souviens. We remember. Freedom is something to be cherished.

    I echo these sentiments: “Although war itself isn’t something that I support, I do, however, feel awed and grateful for the people who are willing to lay down their lives for others. Because sometimes there’s very little choice, and sometimes the war is about human rights and protecting those who can’t protect themselves.”
