On Sunday I will be going to my little country church for the service of rememberance. This is when we in Britain remember and give thanks for those who have given their lives so that we may live in freedom. It is always a solemn occasion as they read the names of the villagers who died in the First World War. One family gave up 5 of theirs, another 4, yet another 4. We cannot immagine what it must have felt like for the mums and dads of those folk. I will also on Sunday give thanks for all the American troops who also have given their lives in past wars and present to defend what they think is right.
As one person who is proud to be Welsh( that is a little country tacked on the side of England) I say Thank You America.
May God Bless you and yours.

Remenbering

Thanks Sussexman, Thanks a lot! Many do not stop and sat thanks in any way for the sacrifices made thru the centuries for freedom, and liberty. It means a lot to me to see something like this posted on a public forum, in a sincere, grateful manner. You are certainly a gentleman and much more than just a "chap" in every sense of the manner. Thank you Sir. Harry T. Thames

I'd like to say thank you for

I'd like to say thank you for the lovely post, too Sussexman. It always amazes me that so many are willing to put themselves in harm's way to preserve our way of life. Every generation has wonderful people willing to step up to the plate. I kept hoping in my lifetime it would no longer be necessary.
