I thought I'd share here what I've posted on FB to mark Remembrance Day

I never know what to say on these important dates each year. My words never feel fitting tributes to those who have gone before me, those who have given so much, who have had their lives robbed from them, their communities and their families. But, I do genuinely believe that we should all continue to remember these days, to pay our respects, to honour all of those men, women, children, animals who have been caught up in warfare throughout history. I have this hope that at some point mankind will learn that violence and warfare may not be the "best" or "right" course of action... Lest we forget
