November 11th is Remembrance Day in Canada, or Armistice Day in Great Britain and other parts of the world. It’s Veteran’s Day in the United States. This Day marks the occasion when WWI officially ended, at the 11th hour on the 11th Day of the 11th month in 1918. Though pinned to the end of conflict of WWI, it is of course a time of remembering and honoring all our veterans, in particular, those who lost their lives in action. There are clear parallels between the observances of Remembrance Day and the work of grief recovery. For Brian there is a personal connection, as his father served in WWII. For all of us there is the important practice of acknowledging significant loss, remembering those who died and taking appropriate steps to incorporate the lessons from both loss and remembering into our present lives.
