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.

My name is Daryl and I was born in October 1965. I was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease in June 2011, and I was put on medication, which I believe is helping keep the worst of the condition at bay. In November 2012 I was also diagnosed with the first stages of Parkinson's Disease and I am now two lots of medication for this illness as well. I live in a secure bungalow in an elderly complex in my hometown of Sutton-in-Ashfield and I have support from the social services and a support worker who visits six hours per week to help me live my life as independently as possible. Visit me on my Facebook page... I love life now, and the people in it - so show your support for me and the organisations that support dementia and Parkinson's disease - let's make this small world of ours a much more pleasant place to live in by caring for those that need that little bit more help in life!
