The Daily Elf: December 18th

The war was on today…

Over a pair of aces, of course. The best kind of war. When we woke this morning we found the game in progress. Woody had just flipped his card over to reveal his ace.

The next time we saw them, they had laid their three cards down. Elfis flipped a 7, but Woody hadn’t flipped his fourth card over, yet. We didn’t know who was going to win!

This evening we saw them and it appears Elfis won the war as Woody had a four. Poor Woody lost his ace in that battle. You can see he wasn’t too happy about it, either. He threw a temper tantrum! While we got to see who won the Battle of the Aces, we don’t know who won the war.

Lest We Forget

poppies

We shall not forget those who went before us. We shall not forget those who died so we could be here today. We shall not forget those who fought for our freedoms on foreign soil.

Today we will join many others at the Cenotaph for the Remembrance Day ceremony. We will honor those who fought, we will remember those who died. Fathers. Mothers. Brothers. Sisters. Aunts. Uncles. Cousins. Friends. They faced dangers most of us will never understand. They faced those dangers so we wouldn’t have to. They faced those dangers to protect what we all believe in. That one day, wars will not be necessary. We shall carry them upon our shoulders proclaiming their bravery. Proclaiming their sacrifice. We shall carry them in our hearts proclaiming their courage. Proclaiming their memory.
