It is the end of a day filled with remembering, of watching on CBC the Remembrance Day service as it took place at the War Memorial in Ottawa. The stories of commitment, bravery, pain and loss were heart wrenching, stories I cannot personally identify with. I am thankful for those who have chosen to serve as peacekeepers in war torn countries.

This photo of morning shadows made me reflect on the families who today have the shadow of loss surrounded with a glow of pride and beautiful memories of their loved ones.

Two of our young grandsons had the special experience this morning together with their Nana to lay a wreath at our city cenotaph in honour of their great-grandfather. I'm sure as they get older they will have a better understanding of the story behind this patriarch in their family.
