Appreciation Day

After WWI the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month was set aside to remember those who had died during this terrible conflict. That war changed every aspect of life from the acceptance of Nurses to fashion.

Then came WWII where the call for King and Country was answered by many of our parents.
My mother was 18 my father 19 when they signed up. Hard to believe isn't it?

Today we wear a poppy and we are encouraged to think of those who died. I also think of those who live and do their duty every day.

Thank you for being the best you can be. Thank you for standing up against terror. Thank you for showing compassion to the victims. Thank you for representing the values we all hold dear. Freedom to speak, to pray, to live the life we choose.

We are blessed. We should Never take that for granted.
