REMEMBER WAR STRIVE FOR PEACE One hundred years on from The Great War and conflict is no less present in our world. Whilst the majority of us here don’t experience the immediate bite of war, for many across the globe it is an all too painful personal reality.
It is appropriate then that on occasions our act of remembering becomes more than a private matter, and is something shared and public – an act of solidarity. That might mean gently laying aside some of the politics for a moment to stand with those who have been scarred by war, as well as those who remain exposed to its traumas.
‘They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
As we remember, let’s also strive – not least of all in our prayers for peace.
