I am in fact a little wasted tonight, as well as stoned, oh yes I am incredibly stoned. My night class got cancelled and I was already set to meet a buddy at the pub, so it worked out well. Our usual pub was in it's usual happy atmosphere, with lots of pretty young people out having fun on their early Friday. My friend and I got a little sloshed, in remembrance of those who fell in World War I, a war we are both quite fond of and are upset that it's not quite as respected here in the U.S. as opposed to the U.K. or Canada. It is a little disconcerting when I don't see people wearing a felt poppy pinned to their jacket, because I'm so use to it from living in Canada, where regardless of the person, they will all be wearing a poppy come this time of year. It's one of those rare unifying moments where we're all united behind a very basic and common idea, besides the usual ones like how awesome Tim Horton's and Trailer Park Boys are. I really love this pub, it never fails to make me happy and is definitely one of the only miss when I escape this hellish death hole. My friend and I both agreed that we really need to start coming here every Friday like we use to back in the year when we first discovered the location. Yeah... pubs like this are great.

There's my drunken/stoned spiel of the night.

I think the US tends to view Veterans Day (or Remembrance, Armistice, or Poppy Day) as a day to honor its living war veterans more than the wars themselves. And the WWI vets are pretty much gone. As for 'unifying' .. maybe I'm just too drunk to see but I'm not even sure which very basic and common idea you're talking about.

Oh great, two drunks trying to explain things to one and other, this should go smashingly.

I guess for Canada, WWI is kind of a special thing because it's one of our very first real wars, one in which we were represented on a global scale. It was really one of our real attempts to show how much we mattered to the whole world. For most the 1800's we just kind of did our own thing, so WWI showed how grown up we had become. In our history classes, there's far more of an emphasis on WWI history then I found in my US History classes I took.

Veteran's and Memorial Day in the US is definitely aimed more towards the living Veterans and that is awesome because the US definitely has more of those at the moment then Canada. I guess it's just seeing everybody wear the poppies gives a real sense of unity in Canada. Like I said, it didn't matter whether you were a business man or some gutter punk, whenever November rolled around in Canada I would see them all wearing poppies. I guess by goal I meant this feeling of commemorating the Veterans of now and yore. Again, drunk person typing here, so I apologize if what I type doesn't make the slightest bit of sense upon first reading.

I didn't mean it to sound like the U.S. doesn't respect it's veterans the same way that other countries do, but I can certainly understand why someone might see it as that.

No need to apologize. I understand you now - I didn't know that stuff about how Canadians see WWI.

Wow I have no idea what you just said!

But when I walked back from the pub I saw a cardigan attached to a hedge and it told me to take it home so I DID!

When has that ever stopped a person? I drank my first drink babysitting at 14! The kids mom gave me rum before she went out!
