Up here in Canada city, we commemorate our fallen soldiers in November, which is typically quite gray, cold, and fucking miserable. There’s something to be said of putting a holiday during the warmer season. That way, you can pay your respect to those who died for your country and have a BBQ all at the same time. Bloody brilliant!
If you’re cooped up indoors and have nothing to do, I strongly urge you to go out and enjoy the (hopefully) beautiful day. Part of the freedoms you enjoy today is thanks to the selfless actions of many fallen heroes. Oh, and here’s a special note for all you fans that are currently stationed overseas in a variety of armed conflicts: don’t you fucking die on us! Get home safe, motherfuckers.
