remembering remembrance day

Canadian+Soldiers+in+The+World+War+II+(13)

In the ’70s, Remembrance Day services at Frontenac Elementary School (in St. Boniface, Man) were kind of amazing when I think back. Ms. Emmonds (my much loved hippy music teacher) always got us to sing this song with her. She played acoustic of course. The gym was always decorated with big paper poppies and painted posters of soldier helmets, guns and gravestones. Various student poems written in thick black marker so you could read them from the middle of the gym. “In Flander’s Fields” would be read out loud and then we’d listen to a recording of The Last Post / The Rouse. Reggie Morrisett held the flag one year (wearing his cub scout uniform) and during the song barfed his breakfast on the gym floor. It made a loud splat noise.

I remember WAR scared me… I couldn’t think of anything worse… more horrific. I never wanted to ever fight in a war. I can’t imagine it. My heart goes out to all those men and women… boys and girls who felt the same… but had to do it. Their fear breaks my heart.
