November 11th, a Special Day

Transcript
On November 11th I think, of course, of all the losses. All these people that sacrificed their lives for their country. Again, I think about all the injured and everybody that served their country and it is a special day. It’s always a bit of a difficult day because I get a bit emotional thinking about all these people.
