On Remembrance Day, Grade 4 student Emma Makarow is feeling inspired. In fact, she decided to write a poem.
"It means a lot to me we remember the ones who died, and also the flowers that lay on Flander's Fields," she said.
Education assistant Anna Tsentorous also offered a few thoughts on the event.
"Remembrance Day to me means honouring those who've served in the war, and also not forgetting. Also, we are so lucky we live in a place, where we don't have to worry about that, but remembering those who fought for us," she said.
Quartermaster-sargeant Matt Watson is with the 116th Independent Field Battery, and on this day he says he thinks about the service of others.
"Not necessarily always fighting for our freedom, but everybody's freedom. It's good to take a moment out of our busy lives to remember the sacrifices those soldiers made," he said.
