We will remember them…

This year has turned out very differently and the COVID situation has continued for far longer than anyone expected way back on New Year’s Day. All manner of events and regular activities have been altered, cancelled or postponed.

This month is traditionally one of the most poignant in the year as we have come to value joining with countless others in two minutes’ silence.

The annual Act of Remembrance has become an important date in the calendar for all those who have given their lives so that right should triumph over wrong.

Sadly, this year, so many of the planned Acts of Remembrance have had to be severely scaled back or even cancelled altogether. Nevertheless, many of us will find ways to pause, ponder and, for some, take time out to pray. These solemn acts transcend boundaries and borders. In themselves they are small acts, but carried out in conjunction with many others across the world, we can contribute to something special, where nations can stand together in order to remember and reflect on the price and value of freedom.

Despite the restrictions, the rules and the regulations, the Royal British Legion are anticipating that, once again, many millions will take part in what has become an iconic occasion. However, we are able to do so, I am sure we will want to play our part as we reflect for two minutes at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month; the moment the guns fell silent at the end of the First World War.

Young and old, alike, we join together as one and say:

They shall not grow 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.

We will remember them.
