well i didn't know if everyone would know that here in uk it is remembrance sunday to remember all our fallen soldiers and those still fighting here is something i found on facebook i thought was very fitting!!

They shall not grow old as we who are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them. Godbless. Lest we Forget

November the 11th is Veterans Day here in the U.S., as well as Remembrance Day for our neighbors in Canada. One of my favorite quotes comes from Major Richard Winters, who was the C.O. of Easy Company of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment in WWII. In an interview, he talks of his grandson asking Grandpa if he was a hero in World War Two, and he told the young boy-

"No, Grandpa wasn't a hero, but he served in the company of heroes".

Thanks for sharing that quote Heidi.
