Default 11th Hour of the 11th Day of the 11th month

November 11 - Remembrance Day in Canada


This one day is set aside to remember the teens of thousands Canadian men and women
who made the ultimate sacrifice so we can have the freedoms that we have today.
This day politics has no place, it is a day to say a word of thanks and to pause and silently remember
and thank the souls for what we enjoy today.
On Remembrance day, Thank a Veteran, buy a poppy and at
the 11th hour on the 11th day respect the minute of silence wherever you may be.

On November 11, 1999 Terry Kelly was in a drug store in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
At 10:55 AM an announcement came over the stores PA asking customers who would
still be on the premises at 11:00 AM to give two minutes of silence in respect to the veterans who have sacrificed so much for us.

Terry was impressed with the stores leadership role in adopting the Legions two minutes of silence initiative.
He felt that the stores contribution of educating the public to the importance of remembering was commendable.

When eleven oclock arrived on that day, an announcement was again made asking for the two minutes of silence to commence.
All customers, with the exception of a man who was accompanied by his young child, showed their respect.

Terrys anger towards the father for trying to engage the stores clerk in conversation and
for setting a bad example for his child was channeled into a beautiful piece of work called,
A Pittance of Time. Terry later recorded A Pittance of Time and included it on his full-length music CD, The Power of the Dream.
