This morning the whole family headed to Fort Langley for the Remembrance Day ceremony. Usually we have gone to Aldergrove where the cenotaph is outside the Legion.
The ceremony in Fort Langley is held at the cenotaph, which is in the cemetery. There was a big crowd of all ages, as well as a lot of well behaved dogs. I didn't hear a single bark.
There was a fly past
This was as close as we got to the cenotaph after the ceremony was over
We were stood next to the little iron railing. It was a cool and gray day, but the rain held off. Appropriate weather for Remembrance Day I think. I always feel so sad during the ceremony.
The cemetery is next to the main road running through Fort Langley. I wonder if the people driving by while the ceremony is on, and especially while most people's heads are bowed during the two minutes of silence, feel guilty for not taking two minutes out of their busy lives in respect for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
