As many of you know, I have very mixed feelings about remembrance day.

During the second world war, one side of my family was off fighting, trying to lie about their ages as they attempted to defend their country. Dying.

The other side of my family was tossed into concentration camps as enemy aliens in the country where many of them were born. Including my father, only a few years old.

So I listened to the remembrance day ceremonies on the radio this morning. And I thought about the peace we have here, and the costs we've incurred to get it.

There's a lot to remember. Lest we forget.
