remembrace / veteran's day 11.11.2007

November 11, 2007 12:15am CST
This is a time to remember all those who died for our freedom in WW1 and WW2. These men and women should never be forgotten. I am totally against war but I will always admire those who are willing to sacrifice their lifes for ours. War today is a corporate business and not a fight for freedom as it was then. If we could have learnt from history, then we would be living in peace, but as man is so ready to destroy each other, I fear this will never happen. Please take a minutes silence on 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. We owe so much to these people. XXX GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN XXX

Yes I will pray for every one today who mad and is making great sacrifices for humanity. Too many governments are making a real mess of things and it is left for the average foot soldier to scoop up the poop, excuse my lingo. I do hope we can all also learn from the lessons of the past and improve the planet forour kid's future.

Yes I always observe Remembrance Day. When I was a child I used to go to the remembrance service at the local war memorial with my grandfather who had fought in WW2 and my great uncle who fought in WW1. They were both quite stern men who never spoke much about their wartime experiences but on the walk back from the service they would talk about it then. Even though I was very young I can remember finding it a very strange idea that my grandad or uncle could ever have to kill anyone. If only we would learn from the past but, like you, I fear we never will.
