Remembrance Day …. A day to remember and give thanks to the brave men and women who gave their lives , and to those who returned , changed forever by what had happened to them . This is the day when the world stops on the 11th day of the 11 hour of the 11 month to be thankful that we are alive and free . A time that most people the world over stop for a few moments to be glad these people did do what they did as the consequences to us if they had not , do not bear thinking about . One day I did just that , stopped and thought about the sacrifices that were made on my behalf , and just what would my life be like now if they had not done what they did .
They made it possible for me and everyone else who lives in a free country to do what they like and go where they want , they made it possible for us to be what we are , to reach for goals that could never have been reached if not for the bravery of others who fought on our behalf . I have been lucky enough to travel the world a few times , have seen half of it and seen some wonderful places and things , none of which I would have been able to do without the freedom I now have . These people put their own safety last as they fought so that I might be safe , and live the way I wanted to with no one to tell me what I can and cannot do and when I can or cannot do something. These men and women were beyond brave they were wonderful people with a great sense of what is right and what is wrong , and they knew they could make the changes needed by doing what they did they never even had second thoughts about it , they just went and did it .
We have so many reasons to thank these brave soldiers for ,but what does make me so mad and so angry are these young idiots who say we are promoting war , when in fact we are promoting peace by remembering a war that should never have happened and promising that it will never happen again . We can but hope it will never happen again , but human nature being what it is , it surely will as countries decide they will rule the world and tell us what to do . There will always be some country or other that will think , now we have all these wonderful weapons we will take over the world , and as seen every day these days it wont be that long away , look at North Korea for a start , their leader is obviously ignoring all protocols and beefing up his army and navy etc. He clearly wants to be in charge of the world , he sees the world and all its beauty and wants it all for himself . The greed that caused the other wars will once again rear its ugly head as it has always done , and as it always will men cannot resist the power and the greed , it is in their nature .
Those too young to know the horror of war , the devastating effects it had on families and on countries run around causing trouble , ridiculing soldiers , calling them war mongers , de facing memorials , they have never known hardship , never known what it is like to be ordered about by someone you do not even know who says you must do what you are told no matter what . They do not realise that without the sacrifices the soldiers made they would not be able to be the idiots they are , it is quite possible they may never have been born. If they were what kind of society would it be ? One that gives them no freedom to go where they want , do what they want or even be the obnoxious toe rags they are , more than likely they would end up in jail or dead . So if it was at all possible it would be great if these idiots could just stop and think first , then do some research , then they would know why we have Remembrance Day and why it is a day that needs to be celebrated each and every year so we do not forget . … We must never forget what was done for us and never stop holding these remembrance days …
We need to pray more and judge less , and let our fellow men live their lives without fear ….
