"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".

UK Prayer for the "Fallen".

"Lest We Forget"

While we go about our hectic lives, it's easy to forget the sacrifices made by many to enable us to live the way we choose. Veterans Day (USA) and Remembrance Day (UK) are designated days for us all to remember the service men and women who provide us with the freedom and protection to keep us safe and secure.

Although, every day, we should take a moment to remember both present and past and thank them for their endeavors and to those who paid the "Ultimate Sacrifice", we should all say..."Thank you and God Bless".
