Remembrance Day

 November 2020 - Toronto ON



I've never forgotten memorizing this in school although the real meaning probably eluded me at the time.


In Flanders Fields read by Leonard Cohen


Today is 20C or 68F. This was taken by me last year at the Remembrance Day ceremonies. This year, they will be held virtually.




TORONTO ON

Found this World War I memorial on Sunday outside Little Trinity Anglican Church.



At City Hall, Toronto.
This large, bronze monument, called Peace Through Valour, commemorates the more than 93,000 Canadian soldiers who took part in the Italian campaign of the Second World War. The work was created by internationally known Canadian artist Ken Lum.

  1. You put a LOT more into your post than I put in mine today, dear Jackie. The memorial that gets me every time I see it, is the one of the shoes along the river in Budapest.
