Lest We Forget.

Poppies have adorned most people’s jackets over the past few weeks in the run up to Sunday’s Remembrance Day. But what exactly are we remembering? The fallen soldiers in WWI and WWII? Absolutely. They are the men and women who laid down their lives to protect and secure our futures, our democracy and for which we are all eternally grateful. The world may be a bit messy at the moment but it would have been a damn sight worse if Great Britain had lost those wars.

But we should also remember all those who have laid down their lives since then, and thank those who protect us still. Our current Armed Forces, who operate all over the world, protecting our interests and the lands and the people of other countries. They never question the politics involved. They never ask why? And they never say “no, sorry that is not my job”. These men and women put on their uniforms, wear the British flag on their jackets with pride and sit on the front line with honour, to keep our country and our people safe.

So not only Lest We Forget but also a Thank You for what we take for granted; democracy and the right to live in safety under their protection.
