Do you Remember

Do you Remember

With Remembrance Sunday approaching I decided to write a post based on the particular day. Recognizing the men and women who have given their lives for our countries to “protect and serve”

Being in the United Kingdom “RS” is well documented every year, spread across the media  to show the admiration for the special people that never made it back from a war. Starting after the first world war, a treaty was passed on the 11th hour of the 11th day on the 11th month. Remembered forever. The day is remembered with a poppy, that grew in the fields of war surrounding the injured and the brave. Made famous by the Poem “In Flanders Field“.

I wanted to take the time to thank all military personnel past, present and future for their dedication and sacrifice, who knows where we’d be if they didn’t dedicate themselves to the cause.

Here is a poem I decided to write in honor of this day and those special people.

Do you remember

The wars of the past

A history, built to last

The men and women who gave their lives

Not knowing if they’d survive

Remembered with a blood red poppy

That grew in fields whilst they fought.

A family pain and children’s loss

Of parents, brothers, sisters, aunts

Remembered forever for brave advance

This Blood red poppy symbolizes their fight

For honour, their country, for us, their sacrifice.

I hope you Remember with me on Sunday 10/11/2013 for the Sunday memorial services up and down the country, and hold your silence at 11am 11/11/2013.

Stay Safe
