Yesterday we went to the Remembrance Day ceremony in Charlottetown. There were ceremonies in communities all over the island, this one being in front of Province House where Canadian Confederation was born. I couldn’t believe the people. There were so many people, standing in complete silence, and not for just the 2 minutes of silence either. It was really wonderful. I was holding it together well until a young woman pushing a stroller, and her son holding a wreath, walked into my viewfinder on their way up to the cenotaph as a choir sang Abide with Me, at which point I got a little emotional.
The shots below were taken by me and my husband Derek. I am so glad we were there with everyone to show our appreciation and respect.
