It's Remembrance Day in Clarenville. It was cold and crisp. Just the type of day that makes you appreciate the things we have - that things that make our lives more enjoyable and more comfortable.
Based on the number of people at today's ceremony here in Clarenville, I am more convinced than ever that the significance of this day is certainly NOT being lost on a generation or two who have had no to limited experience of war.
As we loose our veterans to the "failing hands" of age, I am glad to see so many young people catching their torch and holding it high.
