War - what is is good for - death, pain, suffering, loss... heart ache.
If I painted a poppy for every Canadian who died in the war(s) I would not have enough days to paint in my lifetime. I don't agree with war but I am thankful for all those who gave their life to defend what they believe to be the better way.
The poor suffer most in wars, the poor lose the most in wars - their lives.. still today - men return from war damaged due to the violence they witness and are EXECTED to preform - look at he most recent PTSD shooter in the USA - and for what? Still - how are soldiers rewarded? Most are not rewarded, they return and suffer with mental memories which haunt them for life, they struggle mentally, financially, with family and many- too MANY commit suicide.
Respect is deserved, bow your head for every parent who lost a child to a WAR.
Be silent for every child who never hears a parents voice again - because they had to go to war - what for? Now we live in a time where many are fearful of a war- caused by a selfish titan who rants on twittter and calls people names- president- no he does NOT deserve the respect to be called president. There is currently a war already going on in the United States -of America a war against anyone who the Donkey thinks is below him - pretty much everyone on the planet.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is in France for Remembrance day & I've know doubts he will bow his head in silence to show his respect for our fallen and those who have perished ALL over the world, because he's just that kind of person - not because he is our Prime Minister. I am grateful to those who fought to keep Canada as it is and the fact that WE STILL carry the image of being PEACE keepers around the world! My mom will be marching in a parade tomorrow & will be carrying a flag - thinking about all she has known and lost including my dad - if you see her - don't wave and say HI! - lol
I don't want her tripping or skipping a beat! hee hee
100 years & how many lives do you think in total lost because of war?
Rest In peace & Thank you for the ultimate sacrifice - lest we forget.
