Be a Rememberer

I honour Remembrance Day.

Did you know that there is a little piece of Canada in France?   Vimy Ridge is a Canadian Memorial above the Douai Plains. I have ran the trails through the battlefield park, as we lived about 10 kilometers from the park for about 8 months.  From a runner’s perspective, the ridge is huge.  I can now imagine why it took years to capture the ridge.

I didn’t not go into the preserved trenches.  I was too afraid.   As a six foot tall woman, I was afraid to get stuck down there!  I ain’t no small fry!

Thank you for everyone who has served and serves our country abroad and at home, including policemen, firefighters, ambulance drivers etc.

Here is a permanent mural for Remembrance Day in our little town:
