    Once again it is time to remember. Wear a poppy with pride and gratitude.

    Umm, I think Nov 11 is a more universal date for remembrance, not celebration.

    I guess for some nothing is sacred.

    I personally see it as a day to remember (having heard many stories from a great grandfather that fought at Vimy Ridge) but I see nothing wrong with someone choosing to celebrate the lives of those who gave theirs so.
