An Image taken today…at the 11th Hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month… 2018

I am rather pleased that my favourite Silver Birch has hung onto its leaves for so long this autumn….somehow seemed so right this special year.

A Very Silent Sunday….. Remembrance Sunday

Rememberance-Sunday

The 11th Hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month….

A historic and very significant year to remember…1918 and now 2018.  So many places from Schools, Village Greens or Government Offices, like the one above in Gibraltar, people have shown there own and different ways to Remember those lost in conflict.

Freedom is never free…it always has a cost.

In this world we live in today we still don’t seem to have learned the lessons of the past…we live with violence and hatred, suffering and famine and leaderships that are unstable and bigoted.

Please let there be Peace

A Soldiers Room

So many never came home to their homes…….tomorrow is Remembrance Sunday when at the 11th Hour, on the 11th Day of the 11th Month, 1918, hostilities ceased.

Sadly we stumble on without learning the lessons of History
