Never forget

Stratford Gazette

Recently the federal government has started to take a second look at whether or not to make Rememberance Day a statutory holiday and there has been a lot of controversy surrounding the topic.

Some people believe that making it a holiday will take away from the actual holiday itself. They fear that if kids aren’t in school or adults aren’t at work, they won’t take the time to remember the sacrifice our troops have made for us.

Personally I don’t think this would be the case. I think if more people had the day off, more people would go to their city’s Remembrance Day ceremony. It is my hope that if kids aren’t in school their parents will take them to their city’s Remembrance Day ceremony and make a tradition of it.

I, for one, know that if it does become a statutory holiday that I will not forget. I will be at my city’s ceremony remembering my troops for all that they have done for me and future generations to come.

Lest we forget.
