Remembrance Day

There’s only so much one can say about Remembrance Day. The ceremony is pretty much the same from year to year–this year I attended the one in front of the Legislature here in Victoria. I’ve written a lot about this day in the past: 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008.

This year I was thinking back to the Remembrance Day assemblies in elementary and high school. One year, I have a clear memory of a video being shown, featuring a song, I think, by Bryan Adams. I even remember some of the lyrics:

The guns will be silent – on Remembrance Day
There’ll be no more fighting – on Remembrance Day

This wasn’t the video, but here’s the song. It’s hardly In Flanders Fields, but it’s what I was thinking about today.

  1. The funeral corteges from CFB Trenton goes by our office. These past couple of years have made Remembrance Day much more real.
