Remembrance Sunday.

In Zoe Cameron Blog by Zoe Cameron

On this special day we honour all of those brave men and women who faced unimaginable horrors in our name and in the line of duty. I think of their families and loved ones. As I child I witnessed the deep sadness my Grandmother tried to hide when she spoke about the loss of her Father who never returned from acton .

Some time ago, I read the words written by an historian, ‘Peace is not an entitlement to be taken for granted’, this stuck in my mind, how true and how dangerous it is to let the past be forgotten .
