Remembrance Day 2007

12 11 2007

As usual, our Scout group joined many other scout groups and veterans at the Vancouver South Cenotaph.  The weather was dull grey, a bit cold and even a bit rainy.  Our kids were great!  They stood still and quiet “at ease” when required, and didn’t flinch when the rain started to fall upon them.  The veterans were very happy to see such dedication from our youth. 

I truly hope that kids today will have a chance to meet and talk with someone who’s been in a combat situation to understand the harsh realities of war.  It’s not a video game, and you don’t get to start over if you die.

We shall remember them!
