I felt I needed to start explaining Remembrance Day to Arrine this year. So I found a book to read and made sure that CBC was on this morning to watch the service in Ottawa. She didn’t like the book or the tv because “it was too scary”. And I told her, “Yes. It is scary. But that’s why we need to honour those that fought for us so it wouldn’t be scary now.”

She did want to wear a poppy. And next year she can learn a bit more.

Darn that CBC presentation. Gets me every year.
