Remembrance Day 2008

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Hi all.

It's Remembrance Day here in Canada (Veterans Day in the U.S.), I have the day off, and, well, I haven't really had blogging on my mind.

On this 90th anniversary of the end of the Great War, I've been at home, spending time with my family -- except for the eldest of two daughters, who's at school, and whom we'll be picking up in a couple of hours.

I'll be out for much of the afternoon, but I'll have some new posts up soon, as will the co-blogggers. So, as always, keep checking back. In the meantime, make sure to read "In Flanders Fields," the incredibly moving poem by John McCrae.

I hope you're all having a nice day. Be safe out there.

-- Michael

  • I am just shocked to read in the Wales on Sunday at the likes of Peter Black Welsh Assembly AM ripping into John McCain on his blog for the way he moves his arms. John McCain is a man who suffered greatly when he was shot down over Vietnam serving his country. If you read about the McCain family you will read about sacrifice and service to the United States of America. I read that John McCain’s father was at the signing of the Japanese surrender and died shortly thereafter. John McCain’s son is serving in Iraq. Whole generations of McCain’s have served and risked life and limb in service to their country … and there’s Peter Black ripping into McCain for the way he moves, for the way he uncomfortably supports his arms. Shame on you Peter Black.
