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.



Tomorrow (April 25th) is ANZAC day in this part of the world. I will be taking my daughter to the dawn service to remember those who have died fighting for our country. I think it is a uniquely Aussie/Kiwi thing that our major war remembrance is about a massive defeat, but it was out of that tragedy that the legend of the Anzacs emerged. It is a story of steadfast courage under impossible odds and the forging of the spirit of mateship that somehow saw triumph in that disastrous defeat.





Lest we forget

Well done Wombat, I've walked the Kokoda Track and seen the headstones and trenches of Gallipoli, stood at Quinns Post and Lone Pine - - - it amazes me and makes me tear up to imagine what those blokes did what they did. Lest We Forget.

That battle was so tragic. Hats off and a prayer of remembrance to your Countrymen.
