We Will Remember

We will remember....

This time of year is so important to me, I not only pay my respect to the fallen and remember.

I will remember the stories of my Grandad fighting and being in a prisoner of war camp which to me is heartbreaking.

I will remember the photos and stories my Dad has shared with me from his time as a soldier.

I will remember the news stories from when I was younger with all the soldiers in Iraq and the terrifying scent shown.

Each and everyone one of them in my eyes is a hero, they deserve respect, remembrance and a huge thank you for what they have done.

So today, when the clock struck 11am I served two minutes silence in respect to each and every soldier from past present and future.
