#ygkChallenge: Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day, Lest we forget, poppyWelcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.

This week’s challenge encourages you to:

Remember. Whether you choose to attend a formal ceremony or sit and silently reflect, the objective is to pay respect to those who fought and died to keep the peace.  At the very least, purchase and wear a poppy tomorrow.  Lest we forget.

Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines. Further, help us spread the word via Twitter and Facebook by using the hashtag: #ygkchallenge.

  • We also need to remember everyone else who has suffered as a result of war– all of the civilians who have been killed or wounded, all of the women and girls who have been raped, and all of the child soldiers. I'm wearing a white poppy to remember all of these people. Equally importantly, we need to think about peace and move beyond war.
