It's end of day, I'm tired and it's past my bedtime.. but I wanted to give a quick word about Remembrance Day.
Went to the service downtown (as I do every year) and it was good. We had a veteran key speaker and he was *fantastic*. I overheard someone say that was the most moving speech they've heard ever - I'd have to agree.
I want to forward 2 sites to you.
Cup of Joe for a Joe - donate a cup of coffee to a service member for only $2! It just might brighten someone's day. It's easy and I've done several.
Soldiers' Angels - This site has various activities you can do; donate money, time, crafted items, write letters, etc. Anything you do would be appreciated.
Check them out! Wherever there is a service member, there is a family attached to them. The service member works hard, but so does the family - at keeping them all together.
The only thing harder than being a soldier, is loving one. This I know firsthand.
