Today is Remembrance Day. The 11th Day of the 11th Month on the 11th hour the guns fell silent. The end of the WW1 carnage ended. Lest We Forget these young men and women who answered the call to serve.
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.
For the young men – a generation of them that never made it back and those that did were changed forever – who were shipped to another country to fight on foreign soil. Lest We Forget their sacrifice, their honour and duty.
Let We Forget the heroic nurses who volunteered to serve their country and their calling to tend to the wounded far from home. Their heroism and duty went above and beyond. In their own way they too were soldiers; fighting for the lives of their men. Unsung heroes.
Lest We Forget. We Remember those who served, sacrificed and endured. We don’t celebrate war. We celebrate their sacrifice, their honor.
Lest We Forget.
