Thousands pay tribute at local Remembrance Day ceremonies
TRURO - A little girl walks by a lineup of veterans seated and covered in blankets. She stares for a moment, adjusts her poppy and then retreats to the crowd with loved ones.
It was a simple moment of respect shown at the Truro Remembrance Day service Wednesday. Thousands were in attendance.
After the singing of O Canada, clapping erupted from thousands of people who gathered for the event, held under partially sunny skies and a light wind.
"I don't like war because people try to kill each other," said nine-year-old Riley Blair of Truro.
