The Rotary Club of Charlottetown held its Remembrance Ceremony at a luncheon on Monday.
The guest speaker was Retired Brigadier General David Kettle.
A focus for his Rotary address was what we should all be thinking about during those moments of silence on Remembrance Day.
He says we should all feel for the devastation and grief war brings to families and parents. The grief they felt in losing their sons or daughters, and the guilt some parents faced in not being able to prevent their child from going to war.
Kettle says we should also think about the terrible conditions the soldiers endured, living in muddy, infested trenches, facing artillery fire, machine gun fire, snipers, mustard gas, and disease.
