We Will Remember Them


Remembrance Day touches more Canadians than ever because of the war in Afghanistan.

Since 2002, every Canadian war casualty has made front page news. Their coffins were followed from Afghanistan to "The Highway of Heroes" in Ontario. This has happened 152 times. Death and scarifice doesn't just effect the dead soldiers' friends and family, but the whole country. Tonight on CBC television, there is a documentary on the fallen in Afghanistan. It's called "We Will Remember Them".

Remembrance Day is called Veterans Day in United States. The Poppy is a symbol of this day because of the poem "In Flanders Fields". 

In the second World War, over 100 million people died on both sides. In today's battles a lot fewer people die, but it still hurts.

Discoverying our common humanity is one way to bring peace into the world. Do you remember the World War One Christmas miracle? Check out the song "Christmas in Trenches".
