"Lest We Forget"

It's not very often that I speak my "personal" beliefs or opinions in public... after all... this is an online business based blog and few, if any readers have come here to read anything other than online business related content.

However, I'm compelled from time to time to break from tradition.

So..

I woke up today and eagerly sat down at my desk to go through my usual heap of emails that came in overnight, anticipating the messages from the lists that I'm subscribed to containing Remembrance Day (US = Veterans' Day) messages to warm my heart and re-affirm my belief in the prevailing goodness of humanity (that I usually receive on November 11th).

To my total dismay, ONLY ONE email contained ANYTHING about this most important day!

There were the usual adswaps, webinar notices, marketing messages and sales offers but, with all the lists I'm on (and that's a lot) only one marketer even mentioned what this Statutory Holiday is all about. (I do know it's not a stat day off for everyone).

Many marketers did not mail today and I interpret that as "a moment of silence" as is customary to observe at Remembrance Day Ceremonies.

Everyone who sent a promotional email today should have, at least, mentioned that "they" remember.. IMO

Then I took my daily trip to the grocery store and nearly fell over at the sight of ALMOST NOBODY wearing a poppy over their heart.

Shame on them! (and shame on their parents for not teaching them gratitude)

Do they not realize that they owe their freedom to the ultimate sacrifices of soldiers who fought and died.. so they didn't have to?

Has the free world already forgotten what the families of fallen and injured war veterans will NEVER forget?

As the direct descendant of a Canadian Soldier who landed on the shores of Normandy on D-Day.. I am thoroughly disgusted by the lack of "remembrance" by my fellow marketers and neigbours.

For crying out loud.. I spend most of November 11th every year wiping the tears off my face because I can't stop thinking about how unselfish my Grandad and his buddies were to offer "their lives" in exchange for "my freedom".

I for one, will NEVER forget.. and neither will my children.

To everyone who can relate with me on this, I suppose we can take solace in the fact that, how ever few of us there are now, we are not alone.

To all the Vet's reading this.. imagine me standing at attention.. saluting you.



Warm Regards,
