“Least We Forget”

I forgot about the passion the sacrifice.

The cliché is “The war to end all wars:  first world war of 1914-1918.  Originally idealistic, it is now used mainly sardonically.”

The problem is our technology:  complete annihilation due to nuclear destruction, massive loss of life, disease, famine, pestilence and needless suffering.

But is there an ethical question?

Perhaps, some argue that violence is wrong?

Some say, technology is not all bad.

We tell each other that the resources will last, all we have to do is get off this rock.

Really, can we learn from the past?  Learn from our mistakes.  Learn from the circumstances where survival landed in the arms of the strong, determined and humanity.

We may not be able to control every catastrophe.

We may lack knowledge and understanding.

We will all give peace a chance.

And Remembrance Day is not a platitude, a forget me not, or a lost hope.

Our pride, wisdom, strength and apology (for wrong done) will stand beside any future that is sound enough to propel humanity.

Remembrance Day is more than false hope or patriotism…

‘Least We Forget’…
