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
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. Victoria Healing ~ 25.4.2018 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.'
