Lynn's Comments: All of the Remembrance day strips were done for my mother, my dad, and his brother who were all veterans of the Second World War. My dad was an instrument mechanic and my mother ordered all the parts for the aircraft. They met in England and had some wonderful stories to tell. Uncle Joe was a motorcycle dispatch rider. He never spoke about the war.
Lynn's Comments: How lucky my generation was to have grown up in the post war era. My children, too, have lived in a peaceful environment. I worry about what’s happening now, however. Every day the newscasts are full of unimaginable posturing by powerful men with nuclear weapons who are sounding and acting like children.
Lynn's Comments: This scene was done with reverence and gratitude.
Lynn's Comments: I am always profoundly moved by this ceremony.
Lynn's Comments: My dad used to sing these songs and I learned the words to most of them. They were great songs with wonderful lyrics—written to brighten one’s mood during the darkest of times.
