Lest We Forget

Today we remember all of the fallen soldiers who have fought for our freedom. Today is Remembrance Day. The children and I stopped our usual school studies to watch the Remembrance Day special on CBC. Prior to the actual ceremonies, there were stories of Canadian war heros. Having lived abroad for so many years, I had lost the importance and significance of Remembrance Day. This is the first time that we have actually spent time out of our schedule to remember those who have fought for our freedom. We are very lucky to be living in a country like Canada. We will also read the book In Flanders Fields and reflect on the following poem.

In remembrance, we took the time to do some Remembrance Day crafts and discuss it's importance.
