A 2013 Remembrance Day Conversation

Kitchener Cenotaph
Today is Remembrance Day.

My daughters and I will go downtown to the cenotaph where we’ll stand in the sleet for a prayer.

At 11 am there will be the playing of Taps followed by a moment of silence in schools and workplaces to reflect upon the fallen of the world wars.
Banks and government offices will be closed all day and there will be no postal delivery.

Oh!  Will the garbage truck still be by for pick-up?

Yeah.
