Their name liveth forevermore

Today is Remembrance Day. A day to remember the fallen, those who gave their lives for their country, those who fought bravely and survived, those who were injured. A time of reflection, and thanks.

In particular, it is 90 years since the end of World War One. Today, in particular, I honour those who fought in that conflict, and thank them for their courage and their sacrifice.

I also, on these days, think about the families left behind - both those who lost their loved ones and those displaced by conflict. Everyone makes sacrifices during war, not just those on the battlefield.

Lest We Forget.

**Additional - Today is remembrance day, not "Use the death of millions of men as a political point-scoring exercise' some would do well to remember that. This day is not about politics. For shame.**

Tobias has an excellent post I recommend everyone read.
