Remembrance Day

11 Nov

I don’t have impressive, soul touching words to express my feelings about Remembrance Day. Poets, soldiers and many others have done far better than I ever could. Instead I leave you with an exert from a poem written by Laurence Binyon¬†just after the retreat from Mons and the victory of the Marne. The poem is called For The Fallen:

They shall not grow 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.
