Daisy will be attending a Remembrance Day service this morning at 11am, marking 100 years since the end of WW1. I made a wreath out in the garden for her to take, some willow, rosemary and thyme flowers all growing madly in the spring sunshine. As I sat weaving in and out, round and round I thought of how important today would have been for so many young men and their families. The sacrifices they made. How lucky we are today and how important it is for us to not make mistakes like this again. 100 years isn’t really that long ago, all those young men, boys lost. Such senseless waste. “They shall grow not 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.
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.”
