My own words fall short on today of all days; how to speak of lives lost through needless war.
So instead I turned to a poet and tried to leave this day of remembrance in her safe hands.
FLOWER OF THE ETERNAL SLEEP By Josie Whitehead
Unfortunately Josie didn't want her poem quoted here so I have removed it; however if you can find it at a library near you then I recommend it.
May war be no more.
