For me, Remembrance Day isn't about the soldiers today because it seems to me that most missions are just helping occupy another country. No...when I think of Remembrance Day, I think of World War II because it's when we actually had a choice to fight - and we did to help save the world from Nazi occupation.
Yes, when I saw we I mean my country - Canada. (I chose the most wonderful time ever to finally tell you where I live, don't I? :) )
Our soldiers were some of the many that fought in the worst conditions to fight against a common enemy - Hitler. So many of them died for the family back home.
