100 Years Today – Will We Remember Them?

[Will We Remember Them?]

Will We Remember Them?

Today 4th August 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the day Britain entered one of the costliest conflicts in history – the First World War – with fighting continuing until the11th of November 1918, Armistice Day.

Today there will be commemerative events throughout the UK where people gather to remember those who gave all for our freedom.

We will remember them … or will we?

Hopefully at some stage our attitude & behaviour will make their sacrifice worthwhile.

The reliable statistic from all subsequent generations has been that we always know better yet nothing really changes.

We may remember them, but will be learn?

Take care until next time.

About waywood

Hi & Welcome to my thoughts. I share subjects that are important to me. As you’ll notice, these subjects can be quite broad & varied. I like variety; I like breadth & I like a challenge. I am passionate about helping others overcome their fears, grow in confidence & succeed. Although many people would label me as an achiever, I have battled low confidence, low self-esteem & a couple of nasty, long periods depression over the years. I can’t say, “I know how you feel” but I can hopefully empathise & offer some of the things that are helping me to turn my life around. Please feel free to comment, share & enjoy. Take care, best wishes & keep well Stuart
