Requiescat in Pace

It's that time of the year again. Remember those who gave their lives so that you, yes you, can be free.

They shall not grow old as we who 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 shall remember them.

Earlier this year I visited Tyne Cot cemetery in Belgium, near Ypres. That was an exceptionally sobering experience and I would urge you to visit one of the, sadly, many similar places dotted around. The images on the right and below are from Tyne Cot.
