    Yes! THANK YOU!!

    We had a delightful day for Veterans at school. Many came in for an assembly. They stood, turned and faced all of us--a packed auditorium with standing room only-- and we said "thank you!" in unison and gave them a standing ovation. Then one vet went to each 4th and 5th grade classroom to talk of their experiences. Afterward there had a reception in the cafeteria for them. It's always a touching day and I have to fight tears. Our kids know exactly why they have the day off from school today.

    It's Remembrance Day in Canada today as well, a day to honor those who have served and are serving and to remember those who have fallen.

    At one time this was a day when everything was closed, and there was no school, now it's just another day and to me that is so sad.

    My husband is a Vietnam vet and I know how important the appreciation for veterans and those currently serving is to him. It was so different back in 1969 when he returned from Vietnam.

    Thank you to all veterans and to those serving now for your service and sacrifice.

    I called the veterans in my family today (7 total) and thanked them for their service to our country. My 89 year old aunt was so touched. She was a career Army Nurse and no one had ever called her and thanked her before.
