Lest We Forget
On this day of remembrance, the 100th anniversary of when the guns at last fell silent and the first world war ended, my family and I say a simple, but deeply heartfelt, thank you. Thank you to those who have served, sacrificed and given so much for the safety, freedom and well-being of so many. It is the remembrance of these people and their legacies, as well as the heavy toll exacted on them and their families, that must not be forgotten.
On a personal aside, for those soldiers in our family who gave their lives and those who returned with memories no one should be burdened with, we love you and we remember.
Beautifully said. I too, am grateful for the sacrifices of veterans, both in the past and in the present.When I expressed this to a couple of soldiers today, they thanked me for my support. It is not glorification of war, but remembrance of the atrocities of war and loss of life, given so we may be free.I really didn’t “get this” when I was younger and am happy to see younger people continuing the memory and respect.
