Lest We Forget

Posted on: Thursday, November 9, 2017

Kidoons would like to ask everyone to take a moment of silence at the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day, of the eleventh month to recognize all of the brave soldiers in our lives. Many of you have service members and veterans in your own family, so let's send them thanks and good wishes.
The reason why it is done at 11:00 am is to remember the official end of World War I in 1918.

In Flanders Fields is a war poem written by Canadian Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae. It has become the symbol of Remembrance Day together with the red poppy, to honour those who fought in service to the country. Read by Rick Miller
