Remembrance Day
« on: 08 November, 2019, 08:58:16 PM »
Itís just a few days before Remembrance Day and television is airing short stories to remind us of the approaching day.
I canít help but be in awe of what was done to stop a horrible evil. The destruction was so monstrous. The cost to set things right was beyond incalculable. How do you measure the value of human courage that saw people going into battle facing a strong chance of horrible pain or death? But they went. They stood up for the right.
I am in awe. I am grateful.

Absolutely, the sacrifices people made during those years gave us what we have (and should cherish) today. Ok the world is not perfect, but I dread to think what it would be like if the result turned out differently and that evil was allowed to florish.

I salute them all  :002:

From Robert Laurence Binyon's poem published in The Times newspaper 21st September 1914

They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

We will remember them.
