in remembrance

war memorial

They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted;
They fell with their faces to the foe. ~ Laurenc Binyon

That is such a beautiful and timely tribute. Thank you for sharing! With time I tend to forget about western holidays living here in Japan. Thank you for reminding me :)

Very poignant. I had forgotten that it was Remembrance Day as not much fuss is made about it anymore in South Africa which is a pity. One wants to feel that all those sad lost lives meant something.
