"We Will Remember Them"

"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."

In the United Kingdom today, the Queen will lead the Country in honouring the fallen, after a two minute silence at the Cenotaph in London. 

This is a day for the Nation to remember and honour all those men and women who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom. 

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below. (Excerpt from In Flanders Fields by John McCrae).

Thank you Sush! I do think it is so important to remember them. The younger ones are being taught about it st school, which is good.
