Lest We Forget

11th hour on 11.11.2016 - Remembrance Day

They shall grow not 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

Their name liveth forevermore.
We will remember them.

Mural on the outside walls of our local services club - painted by high school students a few years ago.

Today also marks 50 years since the passing of my Grandfather in Ireland, whom I never had to pleasure to know, as I was only 3 years old. RIP TM.

Looks like this is a very important day in Australia.

It feels as if with everything else going on in the world that Remembrance Day has taken a bit of back seat this year in the media. Its nice to see that we haven't forgotten

Lest We Forget was originally penned in the poem 'Recessional', by Rudyard Kipling; actually dedicated to Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 1897; asking God to spare the British Empire, 'lest we forget' (the sacrifice of Christ).
