Living The Future – Remembrance

November 11, 2007

Today is Remembrance Day in this part of the world.  A day when we are asked to remember and honour those who have fought in wars, many of whom also died.  It was my honour today to be part of a wreath laying ceremony at our local war memorial and cenotaph. 

What stuck me about the ceremony today and a church service earlier was one specific way in which we can honour those who have fought for freedom and for our future.  Today, we can all work hard at living the future that these soldiers had been fighting for.  We can live each and every moment knowing that people sacrificed for our todays.  We can celebrate and live passionately in each moment.  We can enjoy what we have instead of worrying about what we don’t.  We can live the future right now that we have been given.

Lest we forget, we should also remember those people who are living or fighting in areas of war and conflict today.

And, most importantly, let’s all work toward a planet without any war or conflict.  Now, that would be success!
