Lest we forget................

Today as we all know is a day for remembering.. For remembering all those that gave their lives for their country. Not only in the past wars but in wars going on now. I believe we should remember not just the one's who lost their lives but remember all our men and women that are at this moment in fear of their lives now. We have a day of remembrance that we call Poppy day to donate how all the fields were red with poppies. At the moment there are many things going on in schools and other agencies to show our children what happened all those years ago and to try and show them WHY we must REMEMBER them..
I am wearing my poppy..
A field of beautiful poppies...

Our queen remembers them...
Getting close to the poppies..
Framed with Poppies...
Reflecting....
We will take one of these to the crematorium..
The children with hundreds of falling poppies in Trafalgar Square..
Many wreaths are laid in honour...

We will remember them...
Today mums friend's son Joe will come home from Afghanistan, very mixed emotions as four of his friends will not come home with him.We will remember them.
Have a good day my friends.. With love GJ xxx

What a lovely heartfelt tribute, dear GJ. It is a day to honour and remember all of our men and women who served and especially those who gave their all. On this day, we think of how different our lives would have been without them.

P.S. We almost forgot our own Gram who was a nurse in the last years o the war.

Always very sad to hear of the ones who don't come home. :(

My nephew is a Marine and has been there 2 times now. Each time you worry about them and all the brave men and woman serving the country.

I haven't seen much here about this, possibly because the govt is rewriting history to get rid of "inconvenient" heroes from various races.

Thank You to Joe for his service, thank you to many others whose names we do not know. Thank you to all who have returned to the love of family. Thank you to all who have not. Blessings.
