Lest we forget


Good morning world, or good afternoon, evening or night depending on the time of day you are reading this.

Here in Australia it is ANZAC Day so I am sharing The Ode of Remembrance written in 1914 by Laurence Binyon.

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

You may notice the words “lest we forget” are missing, this is because when the poem was written those words were not part of the poem but were added by someone at some point, if you know when and by who please tell me.

That was lovely. There's not enough "remembrance" and honor stressed for our young people. We ALL need to remember.
