Did they just forget?
My congratulations to the organizers and the participants of the Remembrance Day ceremony at the Fort Langley cenotaph on Nov. 11.
The service was well organized and even the sunshine acknowledged the importance of the gathering.
The large crowd that gathered to show their respect for those who gave their lives for democracy represented all ages.
It was especially nice to see young families attending.
I was surprised by the number of males in the crowd who did not remove their hats during the singing of O Canada, God Save the Queen, and the prayers during the ceremony.
Is this sign of respect a tradition that is passé or did they just forget?
