Remembering our ANZACS- Lest We Forget
It’s ANZAC Day today and in an hour or so people all over Australia will start making their way towards Dawn services across the country where we honour all of those men and women who have given their lives in defence of our country.
I usually try to get home to watch my much adored grandpa (who is a veteran of the WW2 North African and Pacific campaigns) march in the ANZAC Day Ceremony. This year he’s not marching due to illness. However, I’m sending him all my love.
And as the clock ticks over this morning for the Dawn service, I’ll be saying a prayer of thanks to those who made the ultimate sacrifice and reciting these words from Binyon’s poem For the Fallen, which are recited in services across the country:
They shall grow not 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.
Lest we forget.
