I’ve been to many Remembrance Day ceremonies, but, I’m sorry to say, none in Weston. I went today for the first time, and it was very moving.
About forty people observed the 100th anniversary of the armistice in near silence. It was quite beautiful; there were no speakers and no organizers, but a community came together to mark an important occasion. A few people quietly streamed the CBC broadcast, and, at some point when it was right, everyone with a poppy walked forward to place it on the cenotaph.
A few minutes later, we all walked off in near silence.
