Last night, my Mom and Dad would have danced at the Legion as they did every year on their anniversary, and then donned their uniform the next day to commemorate their lost friends, comrades in arms and all the lost souls who tragically died in wars. I say prayers, even though agnostic, sending it to the creators of this wild and wonderful universe, that we do not ever have to do it again. Even if it may go nowhere, I am comforted in my memories and hope for the future.
My Mom and Dad, many uncles and Grandfather went to war in both WW1 and 2. My Dad lost a brother and my Mom lost her fiance. I am so proud of their service, but I hope that for my son's sake, world war will just be a distant memory. If you also have family to honour, please, place them in this thread if you wish.
