Sea and be Scene Remembers

Not a day goes by that I don't stop and recognize the beauty that surrounds me here in the Atlantic Provinces - maybe not as often, however, do I stop and think about the sacrifices made – and those continuing to be made, so that I can live in this great part of the world. I will do that right now.

Pay tribute to Canada's veterans and to uphold the principles of peace and freedom for which they fought

I hope you’ll join SABS – and share your remembrances of those you loved and lost, those family members and friends who gave so bravely – maybe even share a thought and a prayer for those who continue working today to protect our freedoms. sb

  2. The simple placement of a poppy on my lapel is small in comparison, but very important, to the sacrifice made by all of the men and women who have served this great country over the years. Take time this week to remember.

  3. Thank you for your comments. We certainly owe a large debt of gratitude to all those who have served and are serving our country. Two thoughts come to mind.-First my sister's husband's brother Marshall Sawler was killed in action in the 2nd world war. Marshall,from Western Shore N S was only 23 when killed. Those who knew him remember him as an outstanding hockey player.
    Secondly, I would like to mention Frank Wheeler, from Newfoundland, who I new well. Frank was only 14 and saw front line action during the 1st. world war.
    Also thanks for the great song,it is especially fitting for our remembrances.

  5. My family has a long military history. Both Great Grandfathers were in world war I, and one was in both world wars. I think about my Grandfather the most. John Parnell served on the HMCS Margaree and the HMCS Algonquin. The Margaree was sunk in the English Channel On Oct 22/ 1940. He had dream that she would sink, rallied some men topside, and then she was rammed. Only those topside survived. 142 sailors lost. He later joined the HMCS Algonquin and took part in D Day. I am grateful to all our vets and those serving today. I don't believe in war, but I have great respect and believe in the men and women that sacrifice so much for our freedom.

    Nice song Stephanie. You still have a beautiful voice.
