We should never forget - but will we ever learn...?Anna :o]
It seems not, Anna.
hyperCRYPTICAL - sadly there will always be people willing or forced to go out and risk their lives to fight the arguments of the people who rule the world; still they should be remembered with respect :)
It is indeed very sad that people are still dying in wars, Terry.
No words could say it more what we owe those who give their lives for others.
Hi Patsy .. I've just watched the Cenotaph Service and am listening to the music as the organisations continue to march past .. As Anna says .. with thoughts on this day - Hilary
I didn't watch as I was working - we observed the 2 mins silence though.
We will remember them.
I'm remembering. :)
Me too, Linda.
Hi Patsy, just got back from the local service. hard time of year for me. glad you and a few other folks remember. x
It's a hard time for so many people, Cheyenne - and sadly the number of bereaved seems to grow with every fresh conflict.
Just finished a blog about our service in Tenerife. I must have sold dozens of those lapel badges in the past weeks!
I didn't realise they were available out your way, Liz.
We must never forget...
The U.S. changed Armistice Day to Veterans Day a few years ago, but the reminiscences still are valid and the parades.
Agreed - it doesn't matter what we call it, or even what day we do it as long as we remember.
Too many lives lost. Yes, we will remember them.
Absolutely, Suzy. Sadly it still continues.
Thanks so much for commenting!
