Rememberance day 2012November 11, 2012
Ben and I attended Rememberance day in Apeldoorn today. Usually I remember the fallen soldiers at home, but it was a beautiful day outside, and we decided to go. It was beautiful. I was proud to see so many locals wearing their poppies with pride on their chest. The rememberance began with bagpipes and there were beautiful speeches given by the major of Apeldoorn, chaplain, and the ambassador of Canada. Also the national Anthem's of Canada, Great Britain, and the Netherlands were played by the orchestra of the Natres (National Reserve).
Never die, never die,
Old soldiers never die —
They simply fade away.
His duty o’er and won
The world will ne’er forget him
To him we say, “Well done.’”
