As I was driving my 6 year old home from school she was busy explaining to me about what she learned in school about remembrance day. She spoke about poppies and the importance of remembering soliders who have helped us. I found myself telling her that her great, great, great grandfather was a solider who protected people a long time ago. She simply said 'wow'. In that moment I was taken aback. I had no idea sharing some family history with my 6 year old would be so moving and so 'wow'. I hope today everyone spends a moment remembering and to say simply 'wow' for all those who continue to help us. Happy Friday folks.
