I will remember

Remembrance Day
 This is the day we remember the men and women who have served, and continue to serve our country. They are the reason we live so well. 
Remember their ultimate sacrifice.

I was born to parents who remembered all too well the horrors of war.
The sounds of gunfire, explosions, and planes flying low.
Bombing raids and rations.
The fathers, husbands and brothers who didn't come home.
It is no wonder they rarely spoke of those days, or never wanted to watch the documentaries on the TV ... they LIVED it.

Tomorrow, I will stop and reflect upon the soldiers I never knew, and those who experienced the consequences of war.
