The Act of Remembrance
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.
Throughout the year there are many days of remembering those who have passed on, but Remembrance Day is a special day that focuses my thoughts on all those veterans that I had the pleasure to know well as well as those that I never met. It is also a time to think about and thank those who have served and are presently serving and wish them good health and long life.
