We must remember

Remembrance-Day-Pictures-4

Typically, I am conflicted on this day.

We must remember. War hurts all. There are no winners, no losers in war. Children die. Mothers die. Fathers die.

Today I am particularly moved by “The Last Post” – moved to tears actually.

We must remember.

The opposite of remembering is forgetting.

Forgetting enables us to repeat the tragedies of our past.
Forgetting enables us to lose sight of the cost of war
Forgetting enables us to ignore the cries for peace

We must remember.

So we don’t forget.
So we don’t repeat.
So we don’t grow cold.

But remembering demands much more than not forgetting.
Remembering demands that we work towards peace.

You. Me.

Because war hurts all.
There are no winners, no losers.
