Today's the day that we stop for a minute to forget deadlines and office politics, and think about something real. So we step out of our comfortable cublicles and living rooms to remind ourselves that war is not a movie, a video game, or even a memory. It is about real soldiers killing each other, real civilians dying, and real families left behind — generation after generation.
There are several things you can do to help:
Join the conversation at Canada Remembers on Facebook
Help children affected by war at War Child
Find out what you can do for our military people at Canadian Forces Personnel and Family Support Services
And to those who have served, thank you.
