I share this piece every year on Remembrance Day, or Veteran’s Day, in the US.
So many fought and gave their lives for what we have. It is not perfect, but it is not ours to disparage, or abandon. To remember their sacrifice, and make the price they paid worthwhile, is our solemn duty. We can never repay them, but we can honor them.
Please, take the time to have a moment of silent meditation today, and remember those who died in our stead.
