War memorial Abberistwyth.
Monument to the Boer war Dublin
On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month 1918 the guns fell silent.
The war to end all wars was over
The verse recited at Remembrance Day services throughout the country is as follows:
“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.”
This year there are no more surving soldiers from WW 1 alive.
Then WW2 came and went.
It never ends, war as it is fought today cannot be defeated by the old methods.
Soldiers don't line up and shoot each other any more. Bombs are placed in gulley's with command wires. Suicide bombers walk into markets.
The sooner we learn to understand each other the better.
May YOUR God go with you
As the sign on the back of the taxi read..
"Make love not war"
Ask driver for details
And for those who know me.
Now you know why passengers ask me to sing...
