The Silence Echoes

It is Anzac Day in Australia today.

This repost is in tribute to all the wonderful people and animals

who risk their lives for us

 

LEST WE FORGET

 

Thank you

SILENCE ECHOES

Should I end at the beginning?
Or begin at the end?
Today being a significant day in remembrance
Of our Australians and New Zealanders
Who lost their lives or suffered for their new generations to defend.
 
Was the sound of the “Last Post” a new hope?
Or a reminder of our great loss
A fortunate day now for some
But how many lives have these terrible wars cost?

Conflicts and battles where our innocent women and men,
who were armed and sent in to hell to protect all at home and defend.
 
Today at Kings Park in Perth, a Memorial Service will be held
To commemorate our brave ANZAC warriors
As a tribute to their bravery, courage and strength.
 
The Flame of Remembrance will always be burning bright

Never to be diminished

As a guiding Beacon of everlasting light and life
 
Words can never express,
For how could we ever forget
Those battles that were fought with courage, bravery and honourable intents.
I have no more words… as the silence echoes back
Reverberating along the Whispering Wall
 
Thank you.
 
Lest we should ever, ever forget.

Silence Echoes

... '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.' 
For The Fallen ~ Laurence Binyon
