This year remembrance day has been very big not just in USH, but also in the media and on television. I was recently watching antiques road show where they have people at an event show them their items, and this year someone had a pistol with a bullet whole diagonally through the barrel. What had happened was someone had shot at them and it hit the gun. I wasn't sure if the soldier had also been hit by the bullet, but little stories like that, which so many people have, is so moving and powerful.
It is so amazing to hear stories like that, and in fact last Sunday my family went up to see my grandparents and we were discovering what one of our relatives did in the war, and we discovered he was a baker!
Even though we are one year further away from war than last year, we build even more respect for the soldiers who fought. I feel like this year after playing the Last post three times, I was able to speak with grandparents and talk about their stories and how powerful the bugle call is to just listen to. From this year's remembrance for everyone who assisted in the war effort, I now have much more respect for them as they put their lives on the front line to fight for our country and freedom.
