They shall grow not 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.

  1. It is very sobering viewing mass graves in France of men we didn’t know let alone seeing those of ancestors. Not sure us humans have perfected the skills of negotiation and tolerance to stop future wars.

    • I know what you mean. We drove through the Somme Valley, not even knowing we had relatives buried there. We practically drove past one of T’s great uncles ☹️
      And I think you’re right; if anything the open-mindedness needed for negotiation seems in every shorter supply these days.
