a world at peace – always
My father survived WWII, though it had an impact on him that lasted his whole life.
My father taught me many things including that men died upon the beaches of Gallipoli
so that I might have a secret vote in democratic elections.
It is me fervant desire that my son, or grandson, or even grand daughters never have to go to war, nor have it come to them.
Or any other mother’s children.
I attend the ANZAC parade at the primary school of the young children in my family.
During the minute silence, I found myself to be quite emotional as I reflected upon all the lives given that we may be free. Also all the hearts that broke, the tears that were shed – for surely they that stayed were as much heroes as those that went.
