This is where I was at 11:00 a.m., on the 11th day of the 11th month.

Looking up, and remembering.

I remembered too. Driving north, I stopped into Kazabazua where I noticed a little gathering at the village cenotaph. The elementary school had put together a beautiful little ceremony (reading of Flander’s Fields, singing, etc). They even got an older fighter plane to fly over. I’ve been to many ceremonies at the National event in Ottawa. This one was just as powerful.

“They gave their today for your tomorrow.”

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark. We have two daughters: Emma (19) and Sarah (17). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
