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.

    I remember that poem from childhood, Cherie – I learnt it off by heart in my junior school in Northern Ireland, and have never forgotten these lovely words

    • CherryPie says:

      It must have been a very powerful and poignant poem to learn as a child in Northern Ireland.

      They are lovely words and those words always make me think.

    We will remember them…

  4. Yes, we remember them, but still the slaughter carries on… as I express on my place with a November 12th post rather than November 11th, as it seems more appropriate to me

    • CherryPie says:

      The remembering shows us the atrocities of the past but it should be a lesson to not repeat the mistakes of the past.

      But those in power have different ideas and the little people don’t speak out…

  5. Indeed.
    I think it’s not only on Remembrance Day, but every day!
