“Some Wars are Never Forgotten”
If wars can be started, they can be stopped as well. The world has seen the war’s mess, mass bloody corpses lying cold in the dead of night after the war ends.
Family’s cries for their loved ones never reach the dead ears. From war, we learn how to move on. Remembering the fallen is what Remembrance Day (Armistice Day) is all about.
It’s November 11
In Canada, the official ceremonies for Remembrance Day are held in Ottawa, Ontario, the national war museum with proper preparation. Poppies are adorned in the remembrance of many men and women who served the nation. GTA airport limo provides its services with great honor for this very special occasion.
Initially labeled as Armistice Day, it was originated at the end of the WWI on November 11, 1918
