No… We Must NOT Ever Forget – 11 Nov 1918 to 11 Nov 2018

It has been 100 years – the world is not the same place as back then but mankind seems to constantly forget that World War One was supposed to be the war that ended all war! The millions of lives lost… maybe, commemorating the sad loss and looking back at that horror will reinforce our own personal need for peace.

Delville Wood Cross

We need peace but it’s so hard to fathom how we can ever achieve what those souls died for… if we don’t even have tolerance for our neighbour’s point of view. We need to smack ourselves against the head… and remind ourselves that we need to accept each other for who we are. Yes, I know the red poppy is the symbol of it all… however, today I want to put a slightly different slant on the poppy as the symbol…

Yes… let’s accept we’re all unique… and all beautiful!

I have, in the past, posted a few poems on Remembrance Day’s – they still hold true…

Let’s stand together for peace!

    En soos jy sê, ons kan nie eers as familie, selfs as vriende, in harmonie saamleef nie.

    Jou versameling papawers is pragtig, AJ! Blykbaar het die mensdom nie veel geleer uit die verlede nie.Dit lyk so vir my asof dinge weer aan die broei is…hierdie keer al die beweging van immigrante in ander se spasies in. Dis ‘n tikkende tydbom.

    Hartseer dat ons 100 jaar later nog so maklik na die gewere gryp…
