Remembrance Day 2013

Take Time to Remember


The year 2013 marks the 95th anniversary of the end of the First World War. On November 11 Canadians will gather at cenotaphs across the country to remember those who fought and died for our freedom.

During both world wars and throughout the Cold War, The Salvation Army tried to establish a degree of civility amidst the loneliness and dehumanizing conditions of war. The Army provided comforts such as hot drinks and snacks and helped maintain morale by establishing leave centres for rest and recreation.

On Remembrance Day, The Salvation Army expresses its gratitude to all the men and women who have served our great nation, from the First World War to present-day Afghanistan, and acknowledge the sacrifices they have made to protect our freedom.

Wonderful… unfortunately not ALL Canadians were able to gather at cenotaphs across the country to remember those who fought and died for our freedom.
In the Atlantic Provinces the Salvation Army Thrift Stores are open today, November 11.
They will also be open on December 26…
I disagree with this as all people should have certain days to reflect and have some family time… is there a reason for this?
What about family values ?
I understand the need to raise money, but this is a bit overboard…what next? Easter?? Christmas day??
