But what really moved me was seeing 80 or 90 year old veterans in full dress uniform, with dozens of medals on their chests, surreptitiously wiping a tear or two. Because they do remember.
Yesterday, I was watching the Remembrance Day ceremonies on TV. This year, prince Charles was here for the occasion.
The ceremony was held at the Canadian War Memorial in Ottawa. There were speeches (in English, French and native languages), gun salutes, planes, the laying of the wreaths, everything that one expects on such occasions.
