Honour peace on Remembrance Day
On Nov. 11 I will remember. I will think of all those who have died who have, willingly or unwillingly, put their lives at risk to defend what they believed in and lost. I will think too of those who returned from fighting disabled or scarred for life in so many ways.
I will think too of those who are not fighters but also victims of war, the women, men and children whose homes and livelihood are in the war zone, in the path of death and destruction. And I will think of those risking lives to defend them.
I will think of all those who died or suffered injury or loss of home or family or capability, whatever their nationality or faith or dreams. All are victims.
And I will not glorify war but will honour peace.
