Remembrance Day 2014, Montréal


It began with the bands, the cadets, and various groups marching.  And, of course, the veterans.

then....

At 11:00 AM, you could have heard a pin drop on the McGill University campus where Remembrance Day ceremonies were taking place.  Two minutes silence.  Not a cough, not a cell phone…..just silence.  It was almost eerie being in downtown Montréal without hearing any noise.  





With all that’s happening in the world, and after the sad events that led to the deaths of Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent and Corporal Nathan Cirillo in Canada, it’s comforting to know that people will take time to come together and remember, in silence.
