lest we forget



I spent some time the other day . .
looking for my poppy photo from the summer. .
and then a bit more time. .
while I played with the script and adding in the poem. .
line by line. .. 
thinking.

It was good to think about those that died that we might have the freedom we cherish so much.
I thought about my grandfather who was inscripted into an army. . 
and then the decision he made to leave that land so that he could live in peace. . .
and worship in freedom ..
the faith he believed was worth giving up all that he had accumulated.

We have much to be thankful for in this land.
I wonder if those that are busy "occupying" today ..
will give  thought to their privilege in having a right to protest. 


all for now. .

  2. I was thinking the same thing this morning, Lovella. I'm sure the veterans wouldn't begrudge the 'occupiers' their freedom to protest, but I wonder if they'd find it worthy of their sacrifice.
