A few Remembrance Day quotes:

 

“How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!” -Maya Angelou

 

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” -John Fitzgerald Kennedy

 

“Year after year we gather and shout commands in the Square,
Wait for the Governor-General, say a few words of prayer,
Lay our wreaths in order, mothers and big shots first,
In memory of those who have made it to the other side of the worst.”
– George Johnston, Canadian poet, Remembrance, 1966

 

“In war, there are no unwounded soldiers.” -Jose Naroskyorge Johnston, Canadian poet, Remembrance, 1966
