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.
Laurence Binyon

This is a sad and proud day for us. Sad that there have to be these conflicts that cost us our young folk and so proud that they are willing to step forward to purchase our freedoms for us.
