It’s hard to believe so much atrocity had happened in such a short space of time 💕 my heart goes out to all those people affected by it
Today is a very important day. 97 years ago the brave men and women at the battle front made history by putting an end to one of the bloodiest and deadliest wars of all time. Known as the “Great War” it was the first of its kind, stretching over various continents, neighbouring countries at war with each other.Many brave people fought and lost their lives and those who were lucky enough to return, were physically, mental and emotionally scarred. It was a hard time for their generation, something I don’t think we would be able to endure in the world today. We owe those men, women and children so much for all that they sacrificed for us all.every year I buy a poppy and even though it is nothing compared to what they have done for me, it makes me feel proud to carry their memory and legacy on, unfortunately less and less people are becoming aware of what this tradition actually means. So if you have time, please spare a few seconds to think and honour all those brave people.
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.
