25 April 2013: LEST WE FORGET.This morning was a time to pay respect and reflect on the ultimate sacrifice that all of our diggers have made for us. Your courage, true grit and never say die attitude has allowed my family, friends and myself to live such a wonderful life in this brilliant country. I have put together a sequence from this mornings paddle on Anzac Day. It’s because of you that I am able to experience so many stunning sunrises and sunsets and call Australia home. I thank you!
“Every man gives his life for what he believes … one life is all we have to live and we live it according to what we believe.” Joan of Arc
I agree: our servicemen and women – past, present and future – deserve our everlasting gratitude and respect for their preparedness to make the ultimate sacrifice. Lest we forget.
Well written Valerie, so true!
