Honor Our Soldiers...Always

Reposted From YouTube:
" On November 11, 1999 Terry Kelly was in a drug store in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. At 10:55 AM an announcement came over the stores PA asking customers who would still be on the premises at 11:00 AM to give two minutes of silence in respect to the veterans who have sacrificed so much for us.

Terry was impressed with the stores leadership role in adopting the Legions two minutes of silence initiative. He felt that the stores contribution of educating the public to the importance of remembering was commendable.

When eleven oclock arrived on that day, an announcement was again made asking for the two minutes of silence to commence. All customers, with the exception of a man who was accompanied by his young child, showed their respect.

Terrys anger towards the father for trying to engage the stores clerk in conversation and for setting a bad example for his child was channeled into a beautiful piece of work called, A Pittance of Time. Terry later recorded A Pittance of Time and included it on his full-length music CD, The Power of the Dream.

Thank You to the Royal Canadian Legion Todmorden Branch #10 and Woodbine Height Branch #2 for their participation in the Video. "

I would like to thank all the men and women who sacrificed so much so that I can sit here posting to my blog today in FREEDOM. I am forever grateful to the soldiers who gave their lives for me. I am forever grateful to the Families of these soldiers who lost their own so that I can post these words freely today.

Please join me in my gratitude and make sure that those around you ALWAYS remember what Remembrance Day (Canada) and Veterans Day (USA) means and ALWAYS honors those who gave their lives for us.
