Lest We Forget

I know there was major news today surrounding the comments made by one hockey personality, but you won't find me dissecting those comments here. Today is a day for honouring the men and women who bravely stood for the freedoms that we believe in while helping other countries maintain or regain those freedoms while remembering the ultimate sacrifices made by those who didn't return home from those battles. I know the controversy swirls around the flowers pictured above, but today is bigger than that controversy. The men and women of the armed forces earned the right to have this day, and I will honour them by remembering those sacrifices.

Never forget what these men and women did, and honour them by wearing your poppy at the eleven o'clock location over your heart to show everyone that you hold our veterans in the most esteemed light. They are brave, courageous, and unwavering both in battle and in life, and those whose lives were taken far too young deserve to be honoured by being remembered on this day.

Never forget, folks. HBIC is closed in order to pay my respects to our brave veterans.

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
