Human nature has it that there have always been those who would oppress and those who will resist. Freedom is something that we inherently seek out and struggle to maintain. Remembrance Day is a way to bring to light the sacrifices made in the fight for liberty and to teach the young about simple freedoms. One day a year is really not enough; however, it seems that honoring our veterans and their efforts is becoming more widespread.
What these 3 images mean to me:
– reflections of a veteran, many of whom do not speak of the horrors they have lived through;
– the young who believe that service in the defense of their country is a personal calling;
– respect for those who have sacrificed personal comfort and even their lives and teaching the young that it counts.
