Lest We Forget

poppies

We shall not forget those who went before us. We shall not forget those who died so we could be here today. We shall not forget those who fought for our freedoms on foreign soil.

Today we will join many others at the Cenotaph for the Remembrance Day ceremony. We will honor those who fought, we will remember those who died. Fathers. Mothers. Brothers. Sisters. Aunts. Uncles. Cousins. Friends. They faced dangers most of us will never understand. They faced those dangers so we wouldn’t have to. They faced those dangers to protect what we all believe in. That one day, wars will not be necessary. We shall carry them upon our shoulders proclaiming their bravery. Proclaiming their sacrifice. We shall carry them in our hearts proclaiming their courage. Proclaiming their memory.
