Take two minutes, would you mind?

They fought and some died for their homeland
They fought and some died, now it's our land...

Take two minutes, would you mind?
It's a pittance of time,

For the boys and the girls who went over.

In peace may they rest,
may we never forget why they died.

It's a pittance of time.

Lines above are from Terry Kelly's tribute song, "A Pittance of Time"

Thank you to the men and women who served--and who still serve.


  1. A very moving tribute Jodi. I love the song. I posted a tribute for our American soliders as well.

  2. A very nice tribute indeed, Jodi. We take so much for granted that it's nice to take a day to remember why we can, and to thank those who make it possible.

  3. Beautiful tribute. I don't think anyone around here even noticed it was Veteran's Day. The kids around here were just excited to have a "Long Weekend." If only they knew what reverence this day deserves.

  4. Hi Jodi

    Indeed very moving.

    I lived in a garrison town called Bordon in Hampshire England where many Canadian troops were stationed in the war.

    Many many units were stationed a few miles away in Aldershot, Headley and Bramshott.

    I would regularly visit the old military sites and walk my dog and take a bit of time to ponder for a minute.

    The old hospital site at Bramshott is where, sadly, many Canadian soldiers lost their lives to the Spanish Flu epidemic and are buried, many miles from home, in Bramshott churchyard.

    I did a post with pictures on my French site http://www.perigordvacance.com - I certainly will never forget.

    All the best
