Remembrance Day

In Canada today is known as Remembrance Day. On this day we take the chance to remember all of those who fought in any war or any conflict and gave their lives in the process. Canada is a peaceful nation and regardless of that many have and will continue to give their lives in the process of trying to achieve that dream.

Take the time, regardless of your opinions about such conflicts, to thank those around you for what you have. Also if you know someone in WoW let them know and thank them for their sacrifices. A little can go a long way and just keep that in mind.

I realize it might be a touchy subject, but I will go on. Blizzard has chosen to celebrate many holiday throughout the year all of them are really about the happy and commercially type holidays. I think it may be about time they took the time to celebrate holidays such as this. Although it is a rather sad holiday it is also is a time to realize how far we have come and what we should be happy for having. Just some food for thought.

  1. In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.
