Lest We Forget

THE NATION REMEMBERS - 11.11.2012

Remembrance Day and the Two Minute Silence have been observed since the end of the First World War, but their relevance remains undiminished. When we bow our heads in reflection, we remember those who fought for our freedom during the two World Wars. But we also mourn and honour those who have lost their lives in more recent conflicts. Today, with troops on duty in Afghanistan and other trouble spots around the world, Remembrance, and this two minute tribute, are as important as ever.





We have only died in vain if you believe so

You must decide the wisdom of our choice

By the world which you shall build upon our headstones

And the everlasting truths which have your voice.

Though dead, we are not heroes yet, nor can be,

'Til the living by their lives which are the tools,

Carve us the epitaphs of wise men

And give us not the epitaphs of fools.
