I was searching for a post to tie in the significance of today to what is happening within our world right now.. So for those new to my blog I am re-posting this post which was written some years ago upon my blog.
I hope we can Remember that each thought and action creates our future tomorrows.. Let us Begin to build bridges between our differences and find peaceful solutions to working through them.
Love and Light..
Remembrance Day this year commemorates 100 years since the Great War of 1914 as well as WWII in 1945.
As we lay our poppy wreaths and say our silent prayers as we remember those who fell during these past Battles, Let us also not forget ALL of those who are still falling today..
It seems Mankind does not learn from Past Wars as he rages on forever doing battle. All we seem to do is create yet more sophisticated weaponry to maim and kill even more multitudes in our so called progression!.. It seems to me Man has progressed Little. For he still can not live side by side his fellow man in peace.
While I so wish to promote Peace upon my blog, this is also a Sanctuary to bring awareness to my readers. So let us not forget all of those who are still suffering right now at the hands of War.. And I would ask you to ask yourself WHY? Why is it we still join in battle to kill one another? Why is it we still throughout the many centuries do we embrace War as a solution in over coming differences.. And if our Governments were really embracing Peace.. Then also ask yourself why are they so ready to Go to War?..
I think many of us are aware enough to see beyond that which we are shown!. I am still always aghast at Man’s inhumanity to Man. And how we become blinked and almost anesthetized to daily reports of the horror we commit against each other in the name of religion. This battle seems to have been waged since time began.. What God promotes War and Suffering? We are the ones doing that.. ‘Sigh’
I wrote the first half of this poem for Remembrance Day in 2010, the second half I wrote today. in 2014 And still we are sat in the same Zone of Remembering..
Remember too.. That if we want to change the World to become more Peaceful then We are the ones who have to Remember it is up to us to Change it, and Live in Harmony and Peace with our fellow Human Beings..
Remember them of yesterday..
Remember them that fell today,
Remember them in faraway lands
Remember them for they too had plans
Remember the old soldiers of World war one..
The Great War to end all wars that was won..
Remember too all the battles that still rage
As History turns yet another page..
Remember too all who serve,
With medals adorned and well deserved.
The medics who brave their lives to retrieve
Those brave soldiers who too they grieve
Remember too all the children who die
Let us not forget their silent cries
We can not keep turning our eyes that are blind
Remember People We are One of a Kind
It matters not what creed that we follow
We need more love in our hearts not one’s that are hollow
As bulletins belch the cruel acts we abhor
Right into our homes as we accept yet more War
Remember too We have a Voice
Remember we are the ones who have a Choice..
Look around you the destruction is rife
Even toys and Cartoons create battles and strife
Open your eyes and Open your hearts
And Remember to create Peace
It is Now we must Start!
Remember!.. It is up to US to Alter our Ways
If we are to bring Peace for future Days..
