A Time To Remember

I got to thinking.

At 6.08 am precisely.

About the lights out for the First World War, I was all for the light as a way of respect , but you see respect for one event doesn't mean you are thinking of any other situation less.

Yesterday I had tweeted:

"War is always going on sadly ,there is always a quest for peace . Just because I RT world war 1 stuff doesn't mean I think less of Gaza"

And in fact some of my friends tweeted back there are 32 wars going on ~ shocking.

For me the First World War brought family secrets/ sacrifice back to the forefront , so lighting a candle was a small but significant mark of respect.

And that's the key lesson respect for when you have respect of one situation then very often it will help you develop empathy for others.

  1. Very true, I was actually in bed as I felt so poorly last night, but we didn't go to sleep without talking about WW1 first. I think it is important to carry on remembering things for Baba, he knows too well what people loose because of war, due to loosing his Uncle Dave, but I think it's really important that he realises that Uncle Dave's war wasn't the only war in the world and that we wouldn't have the life we have today without them. xxx
