I wouldn't dream of forgetting them B.B. or the many from all countries around the world. Please forgive me if I didn't express myself clearly or fully, as I absolutely meant no disrepect to any people or nation whatsoever.
It is the time of the in Canada we Remember Our Fallen. Myself I do try to take into account the Globalness of it all. This means all sides and all peoples.
I don't live with my son, but a few minutes ago he e-mailed me a speech he's been working on for Rememberance Day at his school. There are many grammatical errors and a few spelling mistakes(he's my son,eh!), but I hope his message will get across. His Great Grandad was a POW during W.W.2. He is a very active 96 year old. We are blessed by his (long) life.
Here's the speech: A short speech written by: Gavin
Less we forget, the men and women that fought of us.
Less we forget, the love ones, who die in battle.
Less we forget, the families whom had their love ones taken from them.
Less we forget, the solders that went into battle because they had to,
but not just fighting for their flag and country but for their comrades, their new found friends.
Less we forget, not just are solders who fought on are side but all the
fallen solders who gave their life for their country.
Less we forget, the people whom let us live today in the life we do.
Less we forget, that on remembrance day, we have a time of silent
of the brave men and women who fought for are freedom .
Less we forget, the men and women that came home to their families.
Less we forget, the men and women, who’s lives have been changed for ever.
Less we forget, the war veterans of all the wars passed.
Less we forget, that there is people fighting for us as I speak to you right now.
Less we forget, that remembrance day is all of this, plus more, it would take
days to tell you what has happened in years past.
Less we forget, the victory’s, and the losses.
Less we forget, the lessons those brave men and women had to learn the hard way.
Now who here by the show of hands, know some one that’s in the war, or is a veteran, or was killed in action.
Now I tell you this if you don’t care about the past you will keep living in the past.
If you don’t want to show your respect. One time a year to just think of the men and women
that lived through the years of war, loseing their friends.
Now if you did not lesson to me that’s fine but, I tell you this,
I fell real sorry for you if you lose a loved one in a crash or in the war.
Less we forget, less we forget.
Don't Get Cabin Fever!
