Remembrance Day was this past week. The time to consider those who made our current lives what they are (the recent attack on Paris, France aside).
At the National War Memorial in Ottawa, Canada, at the end of the services, the public has a more recent ritual of coming up to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to place their poppy, and give thanks.
I walked by the memorial yesterday. Not only are the poppies still there, but in the time it took to make the image below, no more than ten people came to take time to remember. One woman specifically to place flowers and have a personal moment.
Canada truly respects and honours its servicemen and women. Its what makes this country awesome.
And if I ran the circus, France, Canada was there for you in to great wars, we are with you now.
