In Remembrance

Here is a picture of my 2 youngest sons Samuel (13yrs) and Isaac (12 yrs) in full uniform on our way to the Remembrance Day Services. They were so handsome!
I cried thru the service for not only the soldiers who have fought and made the supreme sacrifice but for the ones that still are making acrifices everyday so that we can live in this country.
I cried for their families that sacrifice their lives being on hold while their loved ones are working hard to keep the world and Canada safe for us.
So that our boys can go to Air Cadets, basketball, football and school.
So that our daughters can go to dances, go shopping become doctors and lawyers, stay home moms.
So that we can walk down our streets free from fear and death.
It was a long service but in the grand scheme of things cant we 'sacrifice' 2hours a year for the men and women that fought and still do?
I dont think that it should even take a second thought... we should just go-- they do.
