Remembrance Day

On this day, we honour those who have fought for our country
and our freedom.

Remembrance Day isn't just about war and those we've lost,
but about ideals and what we stand for.

It's about respecting our past and looking hopefully forward,
and more than anything, thanking those who have served.
