This week’s Photo of the Week is about Remembrance Day. A very important day – a day of remembrance, but ultimately a day of thanks. A day to remember, honour and thank those who gave their lives so that we can live a life so full of choices.
Sometimes, what seems like the smallest of gestures can have the greatest meaning behind it. This is what I experienced when I attend the Remembrance Day ceremony at the National War Memorial in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada a few years ago. A tradition started spontaneously after the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was built at the front of the memorial. One person’s gesture caught on and now, each year at the end of the ceremony, people gather at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, to give their gesture of thanks.
