I will never forget

I am trying to imagine the experience of fighting in a war, having to focus all my energy, every hour of every day for months / years, trying to preserve my life.

I am trying to imagine what it would be like to have a family member in war, on the other side of the world, aware that I may never see them again alive.

I am trying to imagine what it would be like to lose a loved one in war.

The truth is that I could never fully comprehend what any of this would be like. I am thankful that others have gone before me to provide the freedoms and privileges that I enjoy today.

I will however, never forget, because I know that history forgotten is almost certain to repeat itself.

Those who have fought and currently fight for our freedom deserve the highest honour that any of us can provide. Never take the freedoms that you enjoy for granted. This is how we honour and show our appreciation.
