In Remembrance

A Pittance of Time


Remembering with a thankful heart all those who have served and all those serving now to keep us free and help others be free. Your sacrifice does not go unnoticed! My family will never forget!


Video by Terry Kelly written from an experience he had in a Nova Scotia Shopper's Drug Mart.

In Canada we remember on November 11 with Remembrance Day. On the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour we pause for 2 minutes of silence to remember and honor the fallen and those on missions and serving.

In honor of the those in the States who are remembering Veterans Day, and those of us in Canada, Remembrance Day. May we all pause and remember and be thankful for those who served and are serving and for their families and the sacrifices they have made.

Have a listen to the Remembrance podcast on iTunes or the Royal British Legion blog. It's a good way to remember.

Thanks Susanne, for sharing this. This song had me welling up all over again.

Carol said...

That was cool. Made me think of my dad. He'd have thought it was cool, too.

Am I the only one who noticed the song lasted 4min 30secs?

And, what people like him do not realize is that the brave fought and died for him too. And no matter how he acts or how disrespectful people like him are, those brave soldiers would do it all over again. That's what truly makes them honorable.

Thanks for sharing that. It made me teary eyed.

Susanne, thanks for sharing. I think it's neat that your nation has such an established, universal way of remembering together the sacrifices made by your soldiers. 2 minutes of corporate silence can speak louder than many, many words.

Jennifer (or anyone else interested)Here's a post about how to put video in your blog.

Suzanne, That was AWESOME! Thank you so much for sharing. We should do something like that here although there are parades and such in many places. God Bless you!!

Maria in UK. Welcome. I tried to go to your site through the address that you left but it didn't connect. So hopefully you come back and reread the comments.

We showed that video at our (pre)Remembrance Day event at our school.We always honour the veterans in our community with a ceremony and a luncheon. The students give speeches, read poems, sing songs and lay wreaths.It is hard to keep 200 children still during these events - but there wasn't a rustle or a whisper through this whole song. It conveys the message so powerfully.
