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.
Poem ‘For the Fallen’ by Robert Laurence Binyon.
Today is Armistice Day and November 13th is Remembrance Sunday.
Traditionally red poppies are worn to symbolise those that grew on battle fields such as in Flanders Fields. This year I have a photo of my own little yellow poppy that survived itself against all odds.
A two minute silence is held to mark the end of the First World War, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
Because we should remember all those fallen in all wars.
And make sure that some day it stops.
