Happy Remembrance Day. I hope you had time today to reflect on what the people that have gone before us sacrificed, so that we could live the lives we do today. I think a lot about my dad today too, as his funeral was held on Remembrance Day - although his sacrifices weren't in the war, he sure worked awful hard to make sure our family lived the best lives we possibly could.
