Great Kwalikum Secondary Remebrance Day ceremony

Thanks to all the staff and students at Kwalikum Secondary for the emotional and moving Remembrance Day ceremony.

Thanks to all the staff and students at Kwalikum Secondary for the emotional and moving Remembrance Day ceremony, it brought back sad memories.

The video showed the church being bombed and burned in Pashendaele, where my sister Annie (deceased) a few months previously had her Holy communion.

We saw paratroopers being shot down in mid-air who had come to save us, and viewed many more horrible events, something that no child should have to remember or live with.

Heartfelt thanks to all the students and the respect they showed during the ceremony. I am so proud of you all. I wish I could thank you in person. All was not lost in vain. I am a Flanders Second World War civilian survivor.

A special thanks to Ingrid DeBoer for inviting me and escorting me safely home.
