We Shall Remember Good Bye Dad

Today is Remembrance Day in Canada, and down south, I believe it is Veteran’s Day, a day to remember those who have fallen and made the ultimate sacrifice for us.

I grew up in a generation where we didn’t even talk about Remembrance Day much, let alone celebrate the achievements and sacrifices done by others. Still, I am glad that the traditions of remembering those who fought for our future have returned.

For more about Remembrance Day, click here to go to the Veteran’s Affairs website. If you were wondering, there is an App for Remembrance Day

I remember this picture as “Good Bye Dad,” not sure why but it sums up the sacrifice made by the Families of previous generations in Canada.

The photo ‘Wait for me, Daddy’ shows Private Jack Bernard, B.C. Regiment (Duke of Connaught’s Own Rifles) saying goodbye to his son Warren Bernard in New Westminster, B.C., 1940. (The National Archives of Canada, Claude P. Dettloff)

Remembrance Days Gone by

  1. It was nice to see my niece talk about Remembrance day. The school did quite a bit in talking about the importance of the day and the sacrifices of the veterans.

    Today’s generation and immigrants all need to be aware of the sacrifices our soldiers and veterans have made for us to enjoy this freedom.
