Remembrance Day… What does it mean to you?
Do you have a connection with a soldier who has fought for our freedom?
This year, Remembrance Day is especially meaningful to me. I recently travelled to Europe and while there I visited some World War II sites. My small glimpse into the devastation and destruction of war has given me a little more understanding of the terrible experiences soldiers faced. My appreciation of the sacrifices that the Allied troops made for our freedom is much greater now.
I visited a number of sites significant in World War 2 in various places (museums, cemeteries, concentration camp & memorials) as well as learned about a family member who was involved in the Dutch Resistance. A great-uncle who I never had the privilege of knowing because he was captured & killed by the Germans.
