    They shall grow not old, as we that 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.

    Rememberence Day 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, is about those that have given their lives so that others may have the freedom to choose and live without oppression.

    It is not just remembering those that served in the Armed Forces but also those that died in their civilian roles (Firefighter, Warden, Nurse etc)during whichever conflict from the 1st World War upto present day.

    Probably more of a Europe rememberence as it started after the 1st World War which affect Europe more than America's (Yes I know USA, Canada, ANZACS and Britsh Commonwealth fought as well).

    it's Veteran's Day here in the US. it used to be called Armistice Day because it commemorated the signing of the armistice ending WWI. it was changed to Veteran's Day to remember all veterans, not just those from WWI.

    This is one of the most emotional days for me.
    Remebering and being thankful for what we have as a result of sacrifices others have made.
    I also served in our countries armed forces in times of relative peace.
    One of my mates is a "Blue helmet" peacekeeper and still serving.
    Another was shot by a sniper in Afghanistan. He had an 18 year old son at home.

    Even controversial conflicts require sacrifice by actual people.
    There sacrifice effects us all.
