Remember them…

It is Remembrance Day here in the UK today, and it holds significance more so this Remembrance Poppyyear than any of the others because it is 100 years ago this year that World War One broke out.

The biggest war that humans had ever battled between themselves took the lives of over 4,000,000 soldiers and at least 600,000 civilians – that is an estimate, the total result was probably significantly higher.

As a mark of respect to all who have fallen in battle to preserve our right for democracy and free speech I will be paying my respect at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month – it is only right, as I am able to write this to you all because of their sacrifice.

Be at peace and thank you for fighting for my freedom – to soldiers past, present and future.
