Remember Remember

Posted by Enkill_Eridos on November 8, 2009

Remember Remember the 11th of November. This is a day to honor those that have fought for your freedoms. This is a day to remember those that fought for Queen and Country. It is Veterans day. This day has a long history it is a global Veteran’s day and people from around the world wear Poppies to remember those that have fought in generations past, those that are fighting now, and most importantly those that have given Life, Limb, and in some cases Sanity in the name of Life, Liberty, and the American Way. In of course America and those that did the same for Queen and Country in England. So Remember Remember the 11th of November. Remember to wear your Poppy, see a parade, Drink with a Vet, or toast to all the Vets, or even a moment of silence and reflection. It doesn’t matter how you honor your Vets on Veterans Day, just as long as you take a few moments out of your day to do so.
