LETTER: Thank you to every veteran

A local Maple Ridge resident shares a poem about remembrance

Dear Editor,

Please accept this Remembrance Day message.

.

REMEMBER WHEN

.

I remember whenever I see a

Veteran, legion, poppy, or trench

Or stand by a memorial bench.

.

I remember whenever I see a

Cenotaph, tombstone or Flanders’ Field

Where others standby and solemnly yield.

.

I do remember whenever I remember when,

To say thank you to every one of them.

.

Antoinetta DeWit, Maple Ridge
