Remembrance Day is an important day in Canadian history. November 11th marks the end of conflict during WWI, and it is a time to remind all to reflect and remember those who have served in our nation’s defence.

Remembrance Day is part of our lives, integrating lessons of this day at a very young age in Canada and around the world. If it was not for the women and men that fought for our country back in the 19th century, we would not have the freedom we have today.

At 11:00 am, on this day, Legal Direct will take a 2-minute moment of silence to tribute the sacrifice people made for our freedom today. It is held at this time as the war ended on the 11th hour, 11th day and the 11th month. We will also show our respect by wearing poppies this month as they are a symbol of remembrance of the battlefields.

If you are interested in paying your respects with a simple donation, please donate here. Learn more about Remembrance Day and participate in its history by joining in ceremonies nationally as well.

Please see below for Flanders Fields by John McCrae

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved, and now we lie,

In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields.
