A Moments Silence

Lest We Forget

 
This year Remembrance Day fell on a Sunday. Churches all over the country will have taken time to pray for peace and remember those who lost their lives in war, as we did.
 
Disturbingly, there have been 150 major conflicts in the World since the 2nd World War ended in 1945. It was equally upsetting to hear that the World has only actually been at peace for 26 days during that entire time.
 
I am reminded of the words of Mahatma Gandhi – Be the change you want to see in the World
 
So today I encourage you not only to pray for peace… but to be peaceful. Together we can change the World, because together we are the World.
 
Let's make a difference for the next 67 years.

For The Fallen

 
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
 
As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain;
As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,
To the end, to the end, they remain.
 
Laurence Binyon, 1914
