We Will Not Forget
I wonder how many folks will actually take the time to be still and remember those who gave their lives so that we may enjoy our freedoms and our culture. Many think that Remembrance Day is about keeping the war in the front of people’s minds and the sacrifices. For me it is remembering that so many special people were willing to go off to a foreign land and put themselves in harms way so that freedom would not be extinguished. Where does that courage and that selflessness come from in some? The concept is lost on many now. Our young folks are losing perspective because they have difficulty referencing what they have now with those sacrifices which were made so many years ago by so many brave men and women. That’s why we need to continue to do all we can to keep the spirit of Remembrance Day alive. As the number of veterans decreases it is more critical than ever that we don’t forget.
I have included a link which I hope works. I is a song and video (about 4 minutes) created by a Canadian man–Terry Kelly who captures the it all–(If there is an ad attached to the video please forgive it, click to move by it and enjoy Terry Kelly)—Jim
