At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them.
What a waste.
One Third of the marriageable men of Great Britain died or were maimed in WW1. Their 'quality of life', as the PC crowd would say, was ruined.
War is sometimes brought to us and we cannot but engage.
Whenever we lose our Integrity, our Dignity, Truth, Freedom to live and say what is Right we should remember them.
When ever we choose the wrong path instead of the right one, we should remember the waste of their efforts to save our homes and loved-ones.
When we give in to anger and hatred, we should think of just what was in the enemy that killed those Grand-fathers of ours, those husbands and sons, that also lies within ourselves, and will one day kill other good men; perhaps ourselves.
When we look out over the society we have today, with its desire to kill even those who have yet to take their first breath, we ought to bring to mind that it might have been a quite different society today had not so many men been taken from the gene pool in WW1; and what our society today is doing to the society of tomorrow.
Remembrance too of Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, SJ, a stretcher bearer, decorated by every nation participating in the war, for his selfless courage and compassion for all the wounded he rescued regardless of uniform.
