*Lest We Forget – Remembrance Day*
Resharing from last year… 🙂 My grandfather is still Just as Good … A happy healthy 92… He actually returned with the Canadian Gov’t this year to Dieppe, France to visit the beach where so many Canadians died…. He enjoys reading what people post here on Gplus about this topic. (Yeah he uses the internet pretty good)
I am proud to see it trend here on GPlus (especially after the recent election division in the USA) and am glad people around the world remember so many people who sacrificed for our freedoms.

This is my Grandfather. He is 91 Years old. He still lives on his own and was seen lately fixing the windows in his house, chopping wood and using email to talk to countless people around the world.
He survived Dieppe in France and Years in a World War 2 Prisoner of War camp in Lamsdorf, Germany. His hands were roped and chained from morning to night for over a year. But he Survived. Countless others he fought and lived beside never did. I’ve lived my life growing up hearing his tales and have huge respect for those who died and lived to make sure we have the freedoms we do today.
I hope you remember too. ♥ you Papa and Thank You.
