Lest We Forget

Today is not a day for politics.
Today is not a day for sniping.
Today is not a day for sarcastic comments or offensive thoughts.

Today is a day of respect.
A day to remember all that has gone before.
A day where we spend two minutes in silence - with busy department stores, London traffic, police sirens and manic phone calls all coming to a standstill - to respect, remember and think of those who fought in the trenches, sacrificed their lives and showed nothing but bravery to their last breath.

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.
