Lest We Forget

On the 11th hour,

On the 11th day,

On the 11th month.. we will remember you.

This weekend has been a time to reflect on those that fought to save our lives for out commonwealth countries. On November 11th people wear poppies to show respect in the lives that were left. Our heroes, our fighters, that fought for our country. On the following Sunday, known as (Remembrance Sunday) churches are marked for a special service to remember our soldiers and to lay poppy wreaths.

As always every year on the 11th November I make sure I take the time to get involved in the two minute silence,  whilst also wearing my poppy with pride. It’s also only then do you realize just how beautiful poppies are. If your unsure of how they came about.. Poppies were the first flowers to bloom on the battlefields of Flanders during world war 1.

“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.”

Laurence Binyon

Wear your poppy with pride. Lest we forget.
