Anzac Day.. Lest We Forget.



I apologize straight up for the overload of pics today but.. it's a parade! It's all about the wonderful gentlemen above sitting in the autumn sun and recounting stories of times past, love this shot 💜 It doesn't seem that long since we were at the Anzac Day Dawn Service in Kings Park last year. I love the diversity of the marchers in the parade, some with more walking behind the flags than others, the most poignant the flags held up proudly by today's generation keeping the memory alive with no survivors following. Anzac Day stirs up many mixed emotions. Sadness at the loss of so many young lives, anger at why it happened and most of all frustration that it is more than possible it could happen again. If the men who create war had to physically fight in those wars would things be different? Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

  5. Great post and yes we will all never forget. Your overload of photos was easy for me to download, thank you for obviously resizing them, when people put on masses of photos and all full size, with our slow WiFi I cannot download them.

    Hope all is well with you. My coughing continues and not good at the moment as I have cracked a rib, the two do not go well together!!!! Cheers Diane

  13. What splendid people worthy of our respect and gratitude. A great post. Being Pacific, I am well aware of the heroic record of ANZAC Warriors! I enjoyed seeing N. America present as such. I must confess sadness upon seeing our U.S. flag these days. But I pray and trust Right will prevail here again. Permit me to share some neighbors of Hawaii many are too little aware of. 💓Aloha Dear 🌟

  14. Best words to describe it all ever, Grace. I agree very much - if the men planning the war would have to be in it they´d probably think twice.
    And a wonderful first pic, glad the men can laugh, Ingo´s Grandfather could not, he was a very broken man.
    And yet... likely it really´ll happen again.
