Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the
round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently -- they're
not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify
them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change
things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the
crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that
they can change the world, are the ones who do.

November 11 is Remembrance Day. Its a day we honour all those who served. We pay special attention to those that sacrificed their mortal lives, and those that sacrificed their normal lives with wounds that never went away - be they physical or emotional. We honour you, and we honour your families. Most of all we owe you. We owe you everything. We owe you our freedom, our right to speak, our right to vote, our right to be free of oppression, and our society as you handed it to us. On Remembrance Day, we honour sacrifice. And that is the most important honour. But we also honour your intention of that sacrifice - to live and be free. Thank-you Dad.
